Parameter:
thermal sensitivity - Koenen test: limiting diameter (mm)
Remarks:
2mm
Remarks on result:

Parameter:
thermal sensitivity - Koenen test: limiting diameter (mm)
Remarks:
6mm
Remarks on result:
not thermal sensitive if heated under defined confinement
Parameter:
sensitiveness to friction: friction load (N)
Remarks on result:
not sensitive to friction using a friction load of 360 N
Parameter:
sensitiveness to impact: impact energy (J)
Remarks on result:
not sensitive to impact using an impact energy of 40 J

The substance was tested in its original state, this means not dried and not sieved.

Results:

1) Thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame):

- 3 tests with a nozzle-plate with a hole of 2mm diameter: no explosions

- 3 tests with a nozzle-plate with a hole of 6mm diameter: no explosions

2) Mechanical sensitivity (friction)

- At a load of 360 Newtons no reaction was observed (neither explosion nor combustion)

3) Mechanical sensivity (shock) (10kg, 40cm, BAM)

- the substance is not shock sensitive.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test substance is not sensitive neither under the effect of flame nor to shock and to friction

Description of key information

The study provided was conducted to recognised testing guidelines and with GLP certification.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The test substance is not sensitive neither under the effect of flame nor to shock and to friction

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the experimental data provided the substance is not considerded to be classified as an explosive material
