Results and discussion

Small-scale preliminary tests
Parameter:
other: Explosive (not specified)
Remarks:
migrated information
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Any other information on results incl. tables

In the test on ECOX-C, net expansions of the hole in the lead block of 4.8 mL, 6,0 mL and 7.6 mL were observed. The average expansion was 6.1 mL. Substances with net expansions between 3 and 12 mL are considered to have low explosive power.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The net expansion found in the experiments indicated that the test substance had low explosive power.
Executive summary:

A modified Trauzl test was carried out with the test substance sodium percarbonate to investigate the explosiveness according to the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, test F.4.

In the three tests, an average net expansion of the hole in a lead cylinder of 6.1 mL was found. Thus, the net expansion found in the experiments indicated that the test substance had low explosive power.
