Description of key information

According to an accepted and validated procedure for assessing explosion risk on theoretical grounds Sodium Hydrogen Fluoride is not considered to be explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is considered to not possess explosive properties and it is concluded that sodium hydrogen fluoride is unlikely to undergo rapid decomposition with the production of gases or release of heat sufficient to cause damage to the surroundings, and therefore does not present a risk of explosion. Sodium hydrogen fluoride has a harmonised classification according to Annex VI of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 [the CLP Regulation], but it is not classified for explosive properties. It can be predicted that the substance does not possess explosive properties.
