explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The test is performed according to the EC guideline with some small deviations. However, there is no information on purity of the substance.

Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
1) The falling hammer weighs 5 kg and is dropped from 0.8 m, however, the energy applied is the same as in the guideline (40 J or 40 Nm), 2) In contrast to the EC guideline aluminium foil is used to pack the substance, 3) Ten tests are performed.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
not applicable
GLP compliance:
not specified

Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Test material form:
solid: particulate/powder
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as stated in study reports): JNJ-4508530-AAA (T002707)
- Physical state: solid (powder)
- Appearance: white, beige powder

Results and discussion

Small-scale preliminary tests
Parameter:
sensitiveness to impact: impact energy (J)
Remarks on result:
not sensitive to impact using an impact energy of 40 J
Remarks:
Impact energy used = 39.2 Nm instead of 40 Nm. If all tests according to the Lütolf method are negative, the powder can be considered not shock sensitive as the reference substance meta-dinitrobenzene is not shock sensitive in similar conditions (although not tested simultaneously in this study).

Any other information on results incl. tables

RESULTS:

-10 times negative, not shock sensitive (sensitivity > 39.2 Nm)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test substance is not shock sensitive.
