Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
According to EU A.14 test method, Everlan SL65 was not considered to present a danger of explosion. Therefore, Everlan SL65 was not met GHS criteria.
Executive summary:

The explosive properties of Everlan SL65 was determined according to EC REGULATION No 440/2008 Annex A.14 explosive properties. Everlan SL65 does not present a danger of explosionin the thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame) test and mechanical sensitivity (shock and friction) test. Therefore, Everlan SL65 was not considered to present a danger of explosion.

Description of key information

Everlan SL65 was not considered to present a danger of explosion (EC A.14).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Everlan SL65 did not present a danger of explosion in the thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame) test and mechanical sensitivity (shock and friction) test. Therefore, Everlan SL65 was not considered to present a danger of explosion.
