Response to query by Rex Arul

Propopxy ethanol is indeed an ethylene glycol ether, a member of the group
included in the Toxic Chemical List. The alkoxy ethers of propylene glycol
have been used as substitutes. They are much safer and not on the toxics list.
Their solubilizing properties for water-bourne coating resins may not be as
quite as good, but many people are using them. I believe that Dow Chemical is
the main supplier of the propylene glycol ethers.
