Not flammable.
However, it is carcinogenic.

As I recall strip-x was basically methylene chloride anyway. Ace hardware
has an adhesive remover that is pretty similar. Nasty stuff - use in a WELL
ventilated area. Flammable and carcinogenic. It'll eat through rubber
gloves.

Strip-X was nasty stuff, but it worked!
I seem to recall that it did not have a long shelf life, it would lose
effectiveness over time.
