Diamond Hazard Value Description
2 0
Health   2 Intense or continued but not chronic exposure could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury (e.g. diethyl ether, ammonium phosphate, iodine)
Flammability   2 Must be moderately heated or exposed to relatively high ambient temperature before ignition can occur and multiple finely divided suspended solids that do not require heating before ignition can occur. Flash point between 37.8 and 93.3 °C (100 and 200 °F). (e.g. diesel fuel, sulfur)
Instability   0 Normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and is not reactive with water (e.g. helium,N2)

Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate (also known as 2-Ethoxyethyl Acetate) belongs to the family of glycol ethers that are commonly used in paints and cleaners, e. g. for cellulose nitrate paints. Its properties can also be exploited in coatings for brushing on, dip coating and spraying, and for stove enamels. 2-Ethoxyethyl acetate is also used as a liquid pesticide product1. It is used as a solvent dissolve resin, leather, ink, for the formulation of paints, lacquers and varnishes for industrial use. It is also used to study the field evaluation of a passive badge for measuring the level of 2-ethoxyethyl acetate. It is also used to study the field evaluation of a passive badge. Another application for 2-Ethylhexyl Acetate is as an additive in cleaners and paint removers.

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

2-Ethoxyethyl acetate is a colorless liquid with a mild, nonresidual odor. The Odor Threshold is 0.056 ppm in air


Solvent for nitrocellulose, oils, and resins; retards “blushing” in lacquers, varnish removers, wood stains, textiles, and leather.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with a pleasant odor. Flash point of 120°F. Less dense than water. Vapors are heavier than air.

Air & Water Reactions

Flammable. Slightly soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Mixing Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate in equal molar portions with any of the following substances in a closed container caused the temperature and pressure to increase: chlorosulfonic acid, oleum, and vinyl acetate, NFPA 1991.


Toxic by ingestion and skin absorption. Toxic by skin absorption.

Health Hazard

Vapors irritate nose and eyes in high concentrations. Liquid irritates skin in prolonged or repeated contact.

Fire Hazard

HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. A skin and eye irritant. An experimental teratogen. Other experimental reproductive effects. Flammable liquid when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidizing materials. Moderate explosion hazard in the form of vapor when heated. Mild explosions have occurred at the end of disullations. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also GLYCOL ETHERS.

Potential Exposure

This material is used as a solvent for many different purposes; including for nitrocellulose and other resins. Used in automobile lacquers to retard evaporation and impart a high gloss.

First aid

If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit.


UN1172 Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid

Purification Methods

Shake the ethoxy-ethane with anhydrous Na2CO3, filter and distil it in a vacuum. Redistillation can then be carried out at atmospheric pressure. [Dunbar & Bolstad J Org Chem 21 1041 1956, Beilstein 2 IV 214.]


May form explosive mixture with air. Incompatible with strong acids; strong alkalies; nitrates. Violent reaction with oxidizers. May form unstable peroxides. Softens many plastics. Attacks some plastics, rubber, and coatings

Waste Disposal

Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
