Description of key information

The test item is not considered to exhibit a danger of explosion under the effect of heating nor to shock and to ignition.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

The explosiveness of the test item was investigated (BASF SE, 17/0070, 2017) according to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and UN Transport Regulations test series 1 and 2. For safety reasons the sensitivity to impact and friction was tested in a preliminary test. Assessment of the results within the meaning of the tests showed that there is no violent effect from intensively heating the substance under high confinement. Furthermore, test 1 (c) showed that the maximum pressure reached is less than 2070 kPa gauge. Proven by results of test 2 (c), the time for a pressure rise from 670 kPa to 2070 kPa is 30 ms or more, whereby a pressure of 2070 kPa gauge was not reached. Therefore, the test substance shows slow or no deflagration. In conclusion, the test item is not considered to exhibit a danger of explosion.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Annex I, Section 2.1 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended for the tenth time in Regulation (EC) No 2017/776, and UN GHS Rev 7 (2017) the substance has not to be classified as explosive in class 1.
