Any other information on results incl. tables

Koenen Steel Tube Test:

2 mm Nozzle: Tube split along body, but otherwise intact (time of split: 1 min.25 Sec - 2 min.50 sec)

6 mm Nozzle: Tube recovered intact in 2 test and split along body in one test. It was not appreciated that the tube had split slightly until after the trial and the time of the tube splitting was not recorded


BAM Fall Hammer Test Result: N, N, N, N, N, N (N = No signs of ignition or explosion on impact)

After each trial the test assembly was dismantled. The sample was compressed and appeared to have a dark shiny surface, but it was not considered that this was the result of decomposition.


BAM Friction Test Result: N, N, N, N, N, N (N = No signs of ignition or explosion during friction

Critical load for explosion: > 36 kgf

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, test substance was considered to be non-explosive.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determien the explosive properties of test substance was determined using EU test method A14. Under the study conditions, test substance was considered to be Non-Explosive (Pittam, 1988).
