Thermal sensitivity - Koenen steel tube test

 Plate Hole Diameter  No of trails        Results
 2 mm  3  0  0  0
 6 mm  3  0  0  0

Comment: Where 0 = tube recovered unchanged

Mechanical sensitivity (shock) - BAM Fall hammer test

Drop Hammer Weight 10 kg

Drop Height 40 cm

Result : N,N,N,N,N,N

Comment: Where N = no signs of ignition or explosion an impact.

Mechanical sensitivity (friction) - BAM Friction test

Test Load: 36 kgf

Result : N,N,N,N,N,N

Comment : Where N = no sign of ignition or explosion during friction

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Conclusions:
The explosiveness of 1,3-bis(3-methyl-2,5-dioxo-1H-pyrrolinylmethyl)benzene was determined as non explosive.
Executive summary:

The explosiveness of 1,3-bis(3-methyl-2,5-dioxo-1H-pyrrolinylmethyl)benzene was determined according to EU method A.14. Three tests to determine its explosive properties was subjected to Thermal sensitivity - Koenen steel tube test, Mechanical sensitivity (shock) - BAM Fall hammer test and Mechanical sensitivity (friction) - BAM Friction test.

1,3-bis(3-methyl-2,5-dioxo-1H-pyrrolinylmethyl)benzene was determined as non explosive.

Description of key information

non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

1,3-bis(3-methyl-2,5-dioxo-1H-pyrrolinylmethyl)benzene has no explosive properties and hence no classification according to both Directive 67/548/EEC and GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008) is required.
