Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key value for chemical safety assessment


Additional information

A number of published values are available for the upper and lower flammability of methoxyethanol. These values cover a reasonably narrow range of values and at least 3 are clearly different which suggest that they originate from different sources. No single value is from a reliable source but this weight of evidence allows confidence in the decided key parameter which is based on an average of the quoted values to integer values (2 - 20%). These combined with the flashpoint lead to the conclusion for the key parameter.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flash point falls within the range for classification as flammable.
