Additional information

Explosiveness: Shock sensitivity: Key study. Test method according to EU Method A 14. GLP study. No explosion (bursting into flame) occurred, and therefore, the test did not evidence any explosive properties of the test substance.

Explosiveness: Attrition sensitivity: Key study. Test method according to EU Method A 14. GLP study. No explosion (no crepitation or bursting into flame) occurred, and therefore, the test did not evidence any explosive properties of the test substance.

Explosiveness: Thermal sensitivity: Key study. Test method according to EU Method A 14. GLP study. No fragmentation of the tubes occurs and the shape of the tubes remains unchanged, and therefore, the test did not evidence any explosive properties of the test substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information on explosiveness, the test substance was considered not having any explosive properties, and therefore, the substance is not classified.
