Flashpoint of corrugated

Curtis asks:

I have a quick question. What is the flashpoint of corrugated board? Are there industry articles on this?

Ray Bradbury forever ingrained this piece of data in the minds of millions in his novel Fahrenheit 451.

Under normal conditions it should be 451 degrees Fahrenheit. However… If the board has been treated with some type of fire-retardant coating, or a coating that has an ignition point lower than 451 degrees, then the flash, or ignition, point of the product could possibly be affected.
