Description of key information

Hexyl Salicylate does not contain any groups associated with explosivity. Explosive properties are associated with the presence of certain chemical groups in a molecule which can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure. When there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule then a substance or mixture shall not be classified as explosive. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Hexyl Salicylate does not contain any groups associated with explosivity. Explosive properties are associated with the presence of certain chemical groups in a molecule which can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure. When there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule then a substance or mixture shall not be classified as explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Hexyl Salicylate does not contain any groups associated with explosivity. Explosive properties are associated with the presence of certain chemical groups in a molecule which can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure. When there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule then a substance or mixture shall not be classified as explosive.

The test material is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC.
