Any other information on results incl. tables

1. Mechanical sensitivity (shock): No explosion was observed within 6 tests using a mass of 10 kg falling from a height of 0.4 m.

2. Mechanical sensitivity (friction): No explosion was observed within 6 tests using a pinload with 360 N.

3. Thermal sensitivity: Three tests were performed with a circular nozzle plate with a hole of 2 mm diameter. No fragments appeared

Test no.
