Test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock (BAM Fallhammer)

No impact sensitivity of the sample up to energy of 50 J.

Test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction (BAM friction apparatus)

No explosion occured at any of the tests performed.

Test of thermal sensitivity (Method A. l4 by Directive 92/69/EEC)

During the tests there was no explosion, no registrated the fragmentation. Examinational material Sulfenax TBBS/PT isn't predisposed to explosion under the conditions intensive warming and specified stuffing.

Interpretation of results:
other: non explosive
Conclusions:
The explosiveness of TBBS were determined with three methods (Mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock BAM Fallhammer, Mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction BAM friction apparatus and Thermal sensitivity method A. 14 by Directive 92/69/EEG). During the tests there was no explosion, no registrated the fragmentation. Examinational material TBBS isn 't predisposed to explosion under the conditions intensive warming and specified stuffing.
Executive summary:

The explosiveness of TBBS were determined with three methods (Mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock BAM Fallhammer, Mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction BAM friction apparatus and Thermal sensitivity method A. 14 by Directive 92/69/EEG). During the tests there was no explosion, no registrated the fragmentation. Examinational material TBBS isn 't predisposed to explosion under the conditions intensive warming and specified stuffing.

Description of key information

The explosiveness of TBBS were determined with three methods (Mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock BAM Fallhammer, Mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction BAM friction apparatus and Thermal sensitivity method A. 14 by Directive 92/69/EEG). During the tests there was no explosion, no registrated the fragmentation. Examinational material TBBS isn 't predisposed to explosion under the conditions intensive warming and specified stuffing.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

TBBS has no potential of explosivity; and hence no classification according to both and Directive 67/548/EEC and GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
