Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Tetrabenzylthiuram disulphide
- Substance type: Monoconstituent substance
- Physical state: Solid
- Lot/batch No.: Friction and schock: RB 67, RB65, RB77; flame: 880625
other: More sensitive to shock than m-dinitrobenzene
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
other: More sensitive to friction than m-dinitrobenzene
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
other: Explosive under influence of flame
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Not explosive under the influence of a flame. Less sensitive to shock than dinitrobenzene. Less sensitive to friction than dinitrobenzene.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
As result of the thermal sensitivity, together with the results of the mechanical shock and friction sensitivity, as reported in the report PML 1988-C135, it is concluded that the test substance has no explosive properties in the sense of the EC Directive.

Description of key information

The test substance is not explosive under the influence of a flame. It is less sensitive to shock and less sensitive to friction than dinitrobenzene.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

The thermal sensitivity (effect of a flame) of the substance has been determined according to EC Directive 84/449/EEC. The substance does not explode under the effect of a flame.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not considered to be classified for explosiveness under Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
