Description of key information

Non explosive

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Fluorescent Brightener 002 does not possess any potential for rapid energy release, based on a calculated oxygen balance of less than -200 and based on DSC analyses, where no decomposition associated to exothermic energy release occurred up 500 °C.

Thus, the substance shall not be classified as potentially explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 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, based on calculated oxygen balance (less than -200) and based on DSC analysis, where no decomposition associated to exothermic energy release occurred up 500 °C.

In conclusion, the substance can be considered non explosive, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).
