non explosive

Additional information

The substance undergo to decomposition from ca 170 °C (onset ca 210 °C), releasing an exothermic decomposition energy of ca 395 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 because, although the substance contains chemical groups associated with explosive properties, the exothermic decomposition energy is less than 500 J/g and the onset of exothermic decomposition is below 500 °C.

In conclusion, the substance meets the screening criteria, on the basis of which a substance shall not be classified as explosive, according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
