Description of key information

In a test according to VDI 2263, Part 1 (Decomposition behaviour) Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) showed no exothermic reaction up to 450 °C (Heinz, 2006).

MWCNT is a type of synthetic graphite. From its chemical composition, an explosion hazard can be excluded (EU Method A 14, Heitkamp, 2007).

Test material is meeting the form as described in section 4.5 of the IUCLID dossier.
