PERFORMANCE OF THE TEST

Test substance (ca 5 g) was sieved through a 0.5 mm sieve and dried under a vacuum and over phosphorus pentoxide. The dried material was used in both the shock and friction tests.




THERMAL SENSITIVITY (EFFECT OF A FLAME)

The heating rate of the propane burners was checked using a steel tube containing 27 cm3 dibutyl phthalate, restricted with a 1.5 mm diameter orifice and found to be 211.8° C/min between the temperatures of 135°C and 285°C (within the specified rate of 185 to 2 I 5°C/min). A steel tube was filled with test compound (ca 23 g), a 6 mm diameter orifice plate was fitted, and the tube placed in the Koenen apparatus. The burners were ignited and left on for 5 minutes (unless an explosion was recorded before this time).

Three tests were carried out using a 6 mm diameter orifice place, using a fresh sample and a new tube each time. A further three tests were then performed using a 2 mm diameter orifice place.




MECHANICAL SENSITIVITY (SHOCK)


Dried test substance (40 mm3

was put in the die assembly (the die assembly had been degreased with

acetone) and placed on the anvil in the drop hammer apparatus. A 10 kg weight was released from a height of 0.4 m. The test was performed six times using a fresh sample on each occasion.



j MECHANICAL SENSITMTY (FRICTION)


Dried test substance (I0 mm 3

was placed on the porcelain plate, and the porcelain peg drawn to and

from across with a loading of 360 N. The test was performed six times, using a fresh sample on each occasion.
