Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The determination of explosive properties was conducted according to EU Method A14 using the following systems:

1) The BAM Fall Hammer (or shock) apparatus

2) The BAM friction apparatus

3) The Koenen steel tube apparatus to test the thermal sensitivity.

According to the results of these three tests, lanthanum oxide has been determined not to have shock sensitivity, friction sensitivity, or thermal sensitivity to explosion.
