Thermal stability

Two DSC-measurements in closed glass crucibles with the test item showed an exothermal effect in the temperature range of 140 – 350 °C with a maximum energy release of 348 J/g. The results are summarised in Table1.

Explosive properties

The heat of decomposition was below 500 J/g. Therefore the main test on explosive properties was not necessary.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The heat of decomposition (DSC-Screening) was below 500 J/g. Therefore the main test on explosive properties was not necessary.
Executive summary:

The test item had no explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Method A.14.

Description of key information
