Mechanical sensitivity (shock); BAM fall hammer test:

No signs of ignition or explosion were observed with the negative reference substance. In none of the 6 tests any sign of ignition er explosion was seen with the test substance. There were no flames, no sparks, no soot and no bang.

According to the guideline Wasox-MMAC2 does not have explosive properties with regard to shock sensitivity.

Thermal sensitivity; KOENEN steel tube test:

The results are shown in Table 1. No sign of explosion was detected in any of the tests.

"Wasox-MMAC2" therefore has no explosive properties with regard to thermal stress.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified (CLP Regulation EC no. 1272/2008)
Conclusions:
The test substance Wasox-MMAC2 has no explosive properties with regard to shock and thermal stress.
Executive summary:

A study was to determine the possible explosive properties of the test substance Wasox-MMAC2 was performed according to EU Method A.14, test for thermal sensitivity (KOENEN steel tube test) and test for mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock (BAM: Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und Prüfung, Berlin) fall hammer test. No positive results to shock and thermal stress was observed. The test substance Wasox-MMAC2 was determined to be non-explosive.

Description of key information

Key study: EU Method A.14 and GLP. The test substance Wasox-MMAC2 has no explosive properties with regard to shock and thermal stress.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Key study: A study was to determine the possible explosive properties of the test substance Wasox-MMAC2 was performed according to EU Method A.14 (GLP study), test for thermal sensitivity (KOENEN steel tube test) and test for mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock (BAM: Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und Prüfung, Berlin) fall hammer test. No positive results to schock and thermal stress was observed. The test substance Wasox-MMAC2 was determined to be non-explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, the substance is not classified as explosive according to CLP Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008.
