Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The substance starts to decompose from ca 296 °C with an exothermic energy lower than 500 J/g (i.e. 188 J/g).

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, 2.1.4.2. Screening procedure section, the screening procedure is aimed at identifying the presence of such reactive groups and the potential for rapid energy release.

If the screening procedure identifies the substance or mixture to be a potential explosive, the acceptance procedure (section 10.3 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria) has to be performed.

Screening procedure failed to evidence any reason for concern, on the basis that the enthalpy of decomposition of Direct Orange 118: the test item starts to decompose from 296 °C with an exothermic energy lower than 500 J/g (i.e. ca 188 J/g).

In conclusion, the substance can be considered non explosive, according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
