flammable liquid 
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance 2-(1-methylethoxy)ethyl acetate (CAS 19234-20-9) is a flammable liquid Cat. 3.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive and sufficient for classification:

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance is a flammable liquid Cat. 3.

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to 67/548/EEC and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance in a non flammable liquid.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.
