sensitiveness to friction: friction load (N)
Remarks on result:
not sensitive to friction using a friction load of 360 N
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is not considered to be an explosive.
Executive summary:

The explosive properties of FAT 40574/B were estimated based EC test guideline A.14 has to be performed. Thermal sensitivity, mechanical sensitivity (friction and shock) was performed.

No fragments were observed in thermal sensitivity, mechanical sensitivity (friction and shock). Based on this findings, the test substance is not considered to be an explosive.
