Description of key information

For read across substance: 2-(2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol: 110C (closed cup)
For read across substance: 2-(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol: 142C (closed cup)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no data available for the substance 2-(2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol. Data is available for two substances either side of it in the homologous series of triethylene glycol alkyl ethers, one more volatile characteristics and one with less volatile characteristics. From the data on these substances, it is possible to deduce that the flash point of 2 -(2 -(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol will fall within the range 110 to 142C. Further data to support this interpolation is attached to chapter 13 of the lead registrant's dossier. It can be concluded that flammability is not a property of concern for this substance. The flash point will be >110C.
