In the BAM Fallhammer Testing, the limiting impact energy for MEKO is >60 Joules. These results indicate that this sample is not particularly sensitive to ignition by mechanical impact.

In the BAM Friction Testing the limiting impact energy for MEKO is >360 N. These results indicate that this sample is not sensitive to ignition by friction.

Description of key information

The substance is non-explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Data generated in an ISO-certified laboratory according to an accepted method, adequate for assessment.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results of the available studies, classification as explosive is not warranted in accordance with EU Directive 67/548/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
