X: fewer than 3 fragments

The sample did not exhibit an explosion during any of the tests. The test result is therefore considered negative.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not explosive in accordance with EU criteria
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, the test material was determined to be non-explosive.
Executive summary:

The explosive properties of the test material was investigated in a GLP study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.14.

Under the conditions of this study, the test material was considered to be non explosive.

Description of key information

Under the conditions of the study, the test material was determined to be non-explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The explosive properties of the test material was investigated in a GLP study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.14.

Under the conditions of this study, the test material was considered to be non explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to explosivity.
