Endpoint:
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 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 weight of the falling hammer is 5 kg and dropped from 0.8 m, however, the energy applied is the same as 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
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): T000836
- Analytical purity: no data
- Impurities (identity and concentrations): no data

Results and discussion

Small-scale preliminary tests
Parameter:
other: More sensitive to shock than m-dinitrobenzene
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
Remarks:
If all tests according to Lütolf method are negative, powder can be considered not shock sensitive as 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 (sensitivity > 39.2 Nm).
