Executive summary:

The study was conducted according guideline EC Test method A14. The study was conducted to determine explosive properties of test substance using BAM Friction apparatus (Friction sensitivity), BAM Fallhammer apparatus (Mechanical sensitivity) and Koenen steel tube apparatus (Thermal sensitivity). The test substance did not give a positive result in tests used to determine its sensitivity to friction, shock or heating under confinement, and is therefore not classified as an explosive

Description of key information

EU Method A.14

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance was not found to be sensitive to thermal, impact, or friction stimuli. Therefore, the test substance is not considered explosive and is not classified according to EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
