Description of key information

The self accelerating decomposition temperature (SADT) of di-(4-tert-butylcyclohexyl) peroxydicarbonate is +40 °C. The OP-type of the substance (UN number 3114) is as follows: "Organic peroxide type C, solid, temperature controlled". The test item does not detonate and does not deflgarate rapidly.

Additional information

Control temperature and emergency temperature are calculated based on SADT. SADT is defined as lowest temperature where self-accelerating decomposition of a substance packaged for transport can take place.

In ADR 2011 control temperature as well as emergency temperature of di-(4-tert-butylcyclohexyl) peroxydicarbonate is reported as +30°C and +35 °C, respectively. Based on these data conclusions on SADT can be drawn, which is +40 °C for the test item.

The UN number of di-(4-tert-butylcyclohexyl) peroxydicarbonate is 3114. Accordingly, the substance is an "Organic peroxide type C, solid, temperature controlled".

Organic peroxides of type C are defined as follows:

Every preparation of organic peroxides that has explosive properties can be transported without the additional indicator “Explosive” if the substance/mixture in its transport packaging (maximum 50 kg) does neither detonate, deflagrate rapidly, nor explode thermally.

Thus, it can be concluded that di-(4-tert-butylcyclohexyl) peroxydicarbonate does not detonate and does not deflagrate rapidly.
