Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16 March 2010 - 14 June 2010
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
The EU method was followed. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
according to guideline
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
other: explosiveness
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Molecular structure

None of the components of the test substance does contain groups which are associated with explosive properties.


Oxygen balance

The oxygen balance of the test substance was determined using the following formula:

Oxygen balance: -1600 x [2c + y/2 -z]/Mw [%]


c  =  number of carbon atoms

y  =  number of hydrogen atoms

z  =  number of oxygen atoms

Mw=  molecular weight of the test substance [g/mol]


A sulphur atom is equivalent to a carbon atom. The number of sulphur atoms was included to the number of carbon atoms. Theoxygen balance of the impurities in the test substance was not calculated.The oxygen balance of the main components,sodium methyl 2-sulphohexadecanoate and sodium methyl 2-sulphooctadecanoate,was –204% and -214%, respectively, which is less than -200%. According to this, the test substance is considered to pose no risk for explodability.


Interpretation of results:
other: non explosive
MIZULAN FL-80 has no explosive properties.

Description of key information

None of the components of the test substance does contain groups which are associated with explosive properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, the reaction mass does not have to be classified for explosiveness according to CLP Regulation 1272/2008.
