non explosive

Additional information

On the basis of the thermal behaviour analysis, the substance decomposes below 500 °C with an exothermic decomposition energy less than 500 J/g.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.1.4.2. Screening procedure section, the screening procedure is aimed at identifying the presence of such reactive groups and the potential for rapid energy release. If the screening procedure identifies the substance or mixture to be a potential explosive, the acceptance procedure (section 10.3 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria) has to be performed.

Screening procedure failed to evidence any reason of concern based on the thermal behaviour of Disperse Red 054 as seen in a DSC assay.

In conclusion, Disperse Red 054 shall not be classified as explosive, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).
