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:

Introduction

The explosive properties of the test item was determined using method A14 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

Method

The test material was subject 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

The results were negative for all tests conducted.

Conclusion

The test material has been determined not to have explosive properties
