SOURCE OF TEST MATERIAL
- Source and lot/batch No.of test material:040802#
TREATMENT OF TEST MATERIAL PRIOR TO TESTING
- Treatment of test material prior to testing: For the test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock, (with a BAM Fallhammer apparatus) and the test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction ( (BAM friction apparatus), the test item is sieved at 0.5 mm (fraction test used < 0.5 mm). For the test of thermal sensitivity (Koenen tube test), the test item is used as received.

Key result
Parameter:
thermal sensitivity - Koenen test: limiting diameter (mm)
Value:
2
Remarks on result:
not thermal sensitive if heated under defined confinement
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is considered has insensitive to heat, shock nor friction.
Executive summary:

The explosiveness properties were determined by a serie of 3 tests according to the EU A.14 test guideline.

  • The test of thermal sensitivity was performed with a Koenen tube in triplicate for each diameter orifice plate (6 mm and then 2 mm). The test item did not exhibit an explosion during any of the tests. The test result is therefore considered negative.
  • The test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock was performed on a test item sieved 0.5 mm prior to testing, using a BAM Fallhammer device and a series of 6 tests was performed dropping a 10 kg mass from 0.40 m (40 J). The test item exhibits no reaction at 40 J. The test result is therefore considered negative.
  • The test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction was performed on a test item sieved 0.5 mm prior to testing, using a BAM friction device and a series of 6 tests was performed with a load of 360 N. The test item exhibits no reaction at 360 N. The test result is therefore considered negative.

As a conclusion, The substance is considered has insensitive to heat, shock nor friction.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

  • Test of thermal sensitivity (Koenen tube) in triplicate: no explosion during any of the tests. The test result is therefore considered negative.
  • Test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to shock (BAM Fallhammer device) series of 6 tests: no reaction at 40 J. The test result is therefore considered negative.
  • Test of mechanical sensitivity with respect to friction (BAM friction device) series of 6 tests: no reaction at 360 N. The test result is therefore considered negative.
