Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties
Justification for type of information:
- According to Bretherinck's Handbook of Reactive Chemical hazard (7th ed, volume 2, p. 159), Hexachloroethane CE is on the HALOALKANES group and shows that hexachloroethane does not have explosive hazards.

- Moreover Hexachloroethane is not classified as explosive since it does not contain any chemical groups associated with explosive properties listed in the guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria, section 2.1 Explosives and procedures and waiving of testing.

- Additionally, an expert statement was attached and a differential scanning calorimetry (dsc) of hexachloroethane was performed showing no exothermic reaction up to ca. 400°C
