Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test item has no danger of explosion according to the explosive properties in the sense of the consolidated version of Council Directive 67/548/EEC Annex V, A. 14 (Council Directive 92/69/EEC) and OPPTS 830.6316.
Executive summary:

Mechanical sensitivity (friction):

No explosion was observed within 6 tests using a peg load with 360 N.

Mechanical Sensitivity (Shock):

No explosion within 6 tests using a mass of 10 kg falling from a height 0.4 m was observed.

Thermal sensitivity:
Three tests each were performed with a circular nozzle plate with a hole of 2 mm diameter.

No explosion within 3 tests using a circular nozzle plate with a hole of 2 mm diameter was observed.
