Where:

Explosion Type O = Tube unchanged

 

Test condition: Temperature: 18 °C; Humidity: 32%

 

Limiting diameter (largest diameter of the orifice at which the result “explosion” is obtained): <1.0 mm

The substance does show no effect on heating under confinement.

Where:

N = no evidence of ignition, explosion or decomposition.

 

Test condition: Temperature: 20 °C; Humidity: 32%

 

1/6 explosion point (lowest impact energy at which at least one “explosion” occurs in six trials): > 50 J

Test result: -

 

 

Conclusion

Based on the chemical structure, Koenen test and BAM test of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been negative.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
The substance did not show explosive behaviour neither when heated nor upon mechanical shock.
