Parameter:
thermal sensitivity - Koenen test: diameter of the orifice plate
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Results

Thermal Sensitivity

-No flame/fragmentation was observed in 3 tests with the 6 mm diameter orifice plate.

-No flame/fragmentation was observed in 3 tests with the 2 mm diameter orifice plate.

-Therefore the test substance was not considered to be thermally sensitive.

Mechanical Sensitivity

-In a series of 6 tests, the 10 kg weight was dropped from 0.40 m onto the sample holder containing the test substance.

-No explosion occurred in any test.

-No further testing with the 5 kg drop weight was required.

-The test substance was not considered to be mechanically sensitive.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test substance was not considered to be either thermally or mechanically sensitive.

Description of key information

A K1 GLP study was performed in order to assess the explosive properties of T002675 according the EU Method A.14 (Weissenfeld, 2007). The substance was not considered to be either thermally or mechanically sensitive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Both thermal and mechanical sensitivities were assessed in the test performed.

No flame/fragmentation was observed in 3 tests with the 6 and the 2 mm diameter orifice plates, concluding on the absence of thermal sensitivity of the substance. In a series of 6 tests, the 10 kg weight was dropped from 0.40 m onto the sample holder containing the test substance. No explosion occurred in any test: the test substance was not considered to be mechanically sensitive.

 

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance needs not to be classified as explosive based on the criteria defined in the CLP regulation.
