Expert Statement:

A test substance is considered explosive when it can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure.

The composition of the test substance is shown in Section 1.2. None of the components of the test substance does contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties. In conclusion, Accelerator (PT 25E or PT 25E/2) has no explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The UN acceptance procedure for Class 1 explosives or the EC A.14 explosivity test does not need to be applied due to the absence of structural alerts. Accelerator (PT 25E or PT 25E/2) has no explosive properties.

Description of key information

Because the test substance does not contain

any chemically instable or highly energetic

groups associated with explosive properties,

it was concluded in a GLP expert statement

that the UN acceptance procedure for Class 1

explosives or the EC A.14 explosivity test

does not need to be applied. Testing does

not appear scientifically necessary.

Accelerator (PT 25E or PT 25E/2) has

no explosive properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

An expert statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, classification according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 is not necessary.
