 German term or phrase: MZT "Die Sicherheitskenndaten der anfallenden Stäube können variieren. Sie werden deshalb wie folgt begrenzt: MZT > XXX°C MZE > 1mJ GLT > XXX°C" So, I get that the T stands for Temperature (and the E for energy), but any ideas what the MZ could stand for? I was thinking along the lines of "maximum", but the Z doesn't make any sense to me.
