Additional information

No reliable study is available for the value of the flash point of this UVCB substance. A reliable value is available for the substance 2 -(2 -(2 -butoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol, which frequently makes up more than 50% of the UVCB material. On the basis that this substance is also the lowest molecular weight of the oligomers that usually constitute the UVCB, the flash point of it can be taken as a conservative estimate of the overall flashpoint of the UVCB substance, which is at levels that clearly indicate a lack of flammable properties at any conceivable ambient temperature.
