Description of key information

Data for triethylene glycol butyl ether: 142C.

Data for "Ethanol, 2-butoxy- ,manufacture of, by-products from" (primarily of triethylene glycol butyl ether and tetraethylene glycol butyl ether (3,6,9,12-tetraoxahexadecan-1-ol): 130C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
131 °C

Additional information

A reliable flash point value is available for the substance 2 -(2 -(2 -butoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol. On the basis that the related but higher molecular weight substance 3,6,9,12-tetraoxahexadecan-1-ol would be expected to have an even higher molecular weight, it is an acceptably conservative approach to use the value for the former as a surrogate.
