Executive summary:

In this guideline (EU A. 14) study, the test material (EC 404-363-3) was determined to not be an explosive under flame, shock, or friction.

Description of key information

Study conducted to recognised training guidelines

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The test substance is not sensitive under the effect of flame, to shock and to friction.

Non-explosive

Justification for classification or non-classification

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