Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC1272/2008), the classification criteria are based on the results obtained with the test methods described in UN RTDG (Part I of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria).

The study conducted to determine explosive proprieties of the substance was according to The EU test method A.14 and comprised three parts:

− thermal sensitivity test to determine the effect of heating under confinement (Koenen test);

− mechanical sensitivity test to determine the sensitivity to impact;

− mechanical sensitivity test to determine the sensitivity to friction.

The criterion linked of the thermal sensitivity test to determine the effect of heating under confinement (Koenen test) is equal in EU test method A.14 and UN RTDG test series 2. The tests for mechanical sensitivity to impact and friction of the EU test method A.14 define if a substance/mixture has an explosive hazard. UN RTDG test series 3 lead to the decision whether a substance/mixture is too sensitive to mechanical stimuli; so lower limits are stated.

The test conducted on the substance evidenced no explosion under effect of flame and no sensitivity to shock and friction.
