All results were considered to be negative.

The test substance is not explosive.

Description of key information

A Koenen test apparatus was used for determination of sensitivity to heat (flame), a fall hammer for determination of sensitivity to shock and a friction test apparatus for determination of sensitivity to friction.

All results were considered to be negative.

The test substance is not explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Following testing all results were considered to be negative. Therefore test substance is considered not to be explosive.
