Description of key information

The flammability limits of vinyl acetate are 2.6  to 13.4%.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
highly flammable

Additional information

This information is taken from the CRC Handbook which is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The data is supported by data from the ICSC.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Taken together the values for the boiling point of vinyl acetate (72.7°C) and flash point (-8 °C) will result in a classification of Category 2, hazard statement highly flammable liquid and vapour.
