Conclusions:
Non explosive
Executive summary:

The substance was assessed for its explosivity in three successive tests, according to the EU Mehtod A.14. The substance was subjected to the thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame), mechanical sensitivity (shock) and mechanical sensitivity (friction) tests.

No explosion occured in any of the tests, the substance is not thermally or shock sensitive nor is sensitive to friction.

The substance is not considered to present a danger of expolosion.

Conclusion

Non explosive

Description of key information

Non explosive

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC) No 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.

The substance was subjected to the thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame), mechanical sensitivity (shock) and mechanical sensitivity (friction) tests; no explosion occurred in any of the tests, the substance is not thermally or shock sensitive nor is sensitive to friction.
