Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The substance was found to be non-explosive.

Executive summary:

Study data conducted to Guideline 92/69/EEC of 31 July 1992, Annex.Part A:Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties. A.14. Explosvie properties in accordance to GLP and reported with a GLP certificate.

The method comprises three parts:

a)           a test of thermal sensitivity:

b)           a test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock;

c)           a test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction-Thermal sensitivity

The substance was found to be non-explosive
