Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Flammability range:

Lower limit: 0.6-1.0, 0.76%

Upper limit: 5.3, 10.7%

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

Two published values are available for the upper and lower flammability of 2 -butoxyethyl acetate. These values cover a reasonably narrow range of values for the lower limit although span a wider range for the upper limit. The values are thought to originate from different sources. The key values are taken from the source that has been regarded as a reliable source of such information in EU risk assessments. This data, combined with the flashpoint, lead to the conclusion for the key parameter.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flashpoint is above the range where classification for flammability is required. The data on flammability range and flash point confirms a lack of hazard below 102C.
