Description of key information

The flash point of a substance is the lowest temperature at which it can form an ignitable mixture in air. The experimental value of flash point of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol by the open cup method was found to be 65.1 deg C at 975 hPa atmospheric pressure.This value when converted into 101 325 pascal is equivalent to 67.65 degC.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
67.65 °C

Additional information

The flash point of a substance is the lowest temperature at which it can form an ignitable mixture in air. The experimental value of flash point of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol by the open cup method was found to be 65.1 deg C at 975 hPa atmospheric pressure.This value when converted into 101 325 pascal is equivalent to 67.65 degC. The supporting study shows value different from the key study which could be due to difference in estimation conditions. However for the purpose of dossier and chemical safety assessment key study value shall be considered.
