Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
No positive results were obtained, 2-pentanone oxime should be considered to present no danger of explosion.
Executive summary:

Explosiveness of MPKO was determined through thermal sensitivity and mechanical sensitivity (shock or friction). With regard to thermal sensitivity, none of the tests resulting in an explosion or vigorous reaction. None of the tubes showed a deformation or had burst into fragments. The test substance is not explosive when exposure to thermal stress.

A 10 kg mass was dropped from 0.4 m height on the test substance. In none of the 6 tests this resulted in visual changes in test substance consistency. No (traces of) vigorous reactions were observed. From this it was concluded that the test substance does not react under mechanical stress by shock. The test substance is not explosive when exposed to mechanical stress by shock.
