Remarks:
limiting hole diameter >2.0mm

Test No       Orifice Size (mm)              Observation

1                   2.0                          Flames ~30cm high, no explosion or tube deformation

2                     2.0                            Flames ~30cm high, no explosion or tube deformation

3                     2.0                            Flames ~30cm high, no explosion or tube deformation

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Limiting Hole Diameter: >2.0mm
According to the standard described above, the tested material is not classified as a thermally sensitive substance.
Executive summary:

The Koenen Steel Sleeve test was conducted because of the presence of a double bond in the molecule. The observed result that the limiting hole diameter >2.0mm implies the tested material is not a thermally sensitive substance.

Conclusions:
Limiting Impact Energy >40 J
Executive summary:

The Bam Fall Hammer test was conducted because of the presence of a double bond in the molecule. The observed result that the Limiting impact energy was >40J implies the substance should not be considered as an impact sensitive substance.

Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Limiting Frictional Load >360 N
Executive summary:

The BAM friction test was conducted because of the presence of a double bond in the molecule. The observed result that the limiting frictional load was >360N implies the substance is not a friction sensitive substance.

Description of key information

The BAM friction, Koenen steel sleeve and BAM fall hammer tests all support the conclusion that the test substance is not explosive, EU Method A.14, Bailey 2011

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

In the BAM fall hammer test the limiting impact energy was determined to be >40J and as such the substance is not considered to be an impact sensitive substance.

In the Koenen steel sleeve test the observed result that the limiting hole diameter >2.0mm implies the tested material is not a thermally sensitive substance.

In the BAM friction test the observed result that the limiting frictional load was >360N implies the substance is not a friction sensitive substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results, the test substance is not considered to be classified for explosiveness under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
