Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test material has been determined not to have explosive properties.
Executive summary:

The explosive properties were determined using Method A14 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

The test material was subjected to the following:

1)       The BAM fall hammer test which is a test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock.

2)       The BAM friction test which is a test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction.

3)       The Koenen steel tube test which is a test of thermal sensitivity.

Results:

BAM fall hammer test: Negative

BAM friction test: Negative

Koenen steel tube test: Negative

Conclusion:

The test material has been determined not to have explosive properties.
