Thermal sensitivity

There were no explosions observed in any of the three tests in serial 1 and serial 2, respectively. It can be reported that there is no explosive property of the test item induced by flame.

Mechanical sensitivity (shock)

None of the six single tests showed any reactions. It can be reported that there is no explosive property of the test item induced by shock.

 

Mechanical sensitivity (friction)

None of the six single tests showed any reactions. It can be reported that there is no explosive property of the test item induced by friction.

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Conclusions:
The test substance was classified as non explosive in a reliable study conducted according to EU method A.14.
Executive summary:

The explosiveness of the test item was investigated according to EU method A.14. The test item is neither thermally nor mechanically (friction and shock) sensitive and therefore classified as non explosive.

Description of key information

The test item is classified as non explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The explosiveness of the test item was investigated according to EU method A.14. The test item is neither thermally nor mechanically (friction and shock) sensitive and therefore classified as non explosive.
