Abstract Temperature and concentration limits of flammability were determined for 7 commercial polyurethane solutions and 3 solvent mixtures used in the footwear industry. The solutions and solvents fell into 2 categories: those containing ethyl acetate as the principal solvent, which had wide flammable limits, and those containing dimethylformamide as the principal solvent, which had lower and narrower flammable limits.
