I think in this context that this is what is meant
Could You Explain "Flash Point"?
This gets a little technical, but since flashpoints are so important to worker safety it's worth spending some time understanding them.
A "flashpoint" is a temperature, measured either in C or in F. It is the temperature at which a liquid will burn and keep burning. Flash point assumes these is a spark or some other source of ignition which contains enough heat to warm the liquid to start the fire. A hot soldering iron, shown in the photo below, or the heating elements in a hot air gun both are good sources of ignition, as is any arcing electrical motor or relay.
So, in summary, a low flash point means the solvent is more risky or dangerous than a high flashpoint. High is good; the higher the better, until you get all the way to the highly desirable "nonflammable" rating.
