Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

This substance is void of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides. As an inorganic salt, consisting only of Ag+ and Cl- ions, silver chloride is also considered to be not combustible/flammable, so that any rapid combustion can be excluded. Hazard classification for explosive properties is not required.
