Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None known.

Dust explosion: as the substance is a fine powder, a dust explosion hazard

might exist, but the absence of observed ignition in the A10

test and the minimisation of dusting due to use in solvent

solution together imply little explosion risk during use.

Dust explosion determined by test: N
