Flammable vs. CombustibleThe words flammable and combustible have been around a long time and are constantly being interchanged with each other which is confusing.Combustible means that something will burn.Flammable also means that, BUT... its meaning goes beyond that.

A material that is flammable catches on fire from a minimal source. For example, propane can catch fire from just a tiny spark. A material that is combustible or combustile is any material that will burn but requires a more dominant source. For example, wood is combustile, it burns, but it needs more than just a spark to do so. All flammable material are combustible but not all combustible material are flammable
