A complex combination of hydrocarbons produced as the residual fraction from the distillation of heavy coker gas oil and vacuum gas oil. It predominantly consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly greater than C13 and boiling above approximately 230°C (446°F).
In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the explosive properties studies (required in section R.7.11) do not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule.
Heavy fuel oils do not meet the EU criteria for explosiveness and therefore not classified for the same.
