non explosive

Additional information

EU Method A.14; Thermal sensitivity, Mechanical Sensitivity (Shock and Friction)

There are chemical groups associated with explosive properties. A screening test shows an endothermic effect (melting, 84.5 °C) and a decomposition of the substance in the range 290 - 440 °C with decomposition energy of 600 J/g. But the calculated oxygen balance is less than -200.

Furthermore no mechanical sensitivity (shock and friction) was observed.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on explosivity of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: There are chemical groups associated with explosive properties, but based on the calculated oxygen balance (less than -200) the substance is considered to be not explosive.
