Ignition temperature is the minimum temperature required to cause self - sustained combustion without a flame to any material or external source of ignition.

Flashpoint is the minimum temperature whereby the vapor of material will ignite when given a source of ignition.

The fire point is the minimum temperature at which the vapor of fuel will burn for at least 5 seconds after ignition by an open flame.
