Description of key information

The substance has no explosive properties because it is not classified as Organic Peroxide Type B (reference CPL regulations 2.15.2.2 and UN Recommendations on the transport of Dangerous Goods, 16th revised edition, Section 2.5.3.2.4. See also ECHA guidance on the application of CLP criteria, section 2.14). Methyl isobutyl ketone peroxide is classified as organic peroxide TYPE D.

 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The classification of organic peroxides into one of the seven categories of “Types A to G” is given in decision logic Figure 2.15.1 of CLP, based on the test series A to H, as described in the Part II of the UN-MTC. See endpoint 4.13 Flammability. The substance has no explosive properties because it is not classified as Organic Peroxide Type B.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification, Labelling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008
The available experimental test data are reliable and suitable for classification purposes under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Based on available data, the test item is classified and labelled as Organic Peroxide Type D (H242: "Heating may cause a fire") according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the eighth time in Regulation (EU) No 2016/918.
