Non explosive,  EU Method A.14,  Calmels 1996b

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

The explosivity of the test material was determined in three tests performed in accordance with EU Method A.14. The explosivity of the test material was assessed using mechanical sensitivity (shock), mechanical sensitivity (friction) and thermal sensitivity tests. All tests provided negative results in the early stages of testing and so were not extended for further assessment. Under the conditions of the three tests, the test material was considered to be non-explosive.

The study was performed in line with GLP and an accepted standardised guideline with a high level of reporting. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria of Klimisch (1997) and considered suitable for assessment as an accurate reflection of the test material.

The available data are considered to be complete and the conclusion, non-explosive, was taken forward for risk assessment.
