Description of key information

Based on an expert statement, the test substance is considered to be non-explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

An expert statement was made stating that it could be concluded beyond a reasonable doubt that the test substance is not a potential explosive and does not have a potential for rapid energy release (RCC 2006). This was based on the fact that the test substance only had an exothermic decomposition energy of about 219 J/g and that the presence of azo groups and unsaturated C-C linkage in the test substance did not seem to pose a risk as was demonstrated by the calorimetric test.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the test substance is not explosive, classification is not needed according to the Directive 67/584/EEC and according to the EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
