Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

The surface tension of ethoxypropanol has not been measured at the preferred concentration of 1000mg/l. However, measured data available down to a dilution of 20% can be extrapolated to predict a surface tension of around 57mN/m at a solution strength of around 5% with reasonable accuracy. Data for a surrogate substance which is structurally similar but more likely to exhibit surface activity shows that this is not surface active at more appropriate dilutions. Overall, it can be concluded from the data available that surface activity is not an important property of this substance..
