Musk xylene is used as an example case in the United Nations Manual of Test Methods and Criteria as a substance which shows some explosive properties but which does not have to be transported as Class 1 dangerous goods under the Model Regulations.It is transported as small flakes in plastic bags (maximum 50 kg net mass), which are themselves within cardboard drums to avoid tearing. This does not count as "confinement" in the meaning of explosives tests: indeed, the special packing is intended to prevent over-confinement during transport. musk ambrette 99% cas
It will explode when detonated under confinement (UN gap test) or when heated under confinement (Koenen test), but does not explode under the BAM fallhammer test (limiting impact energy 25 J) or the BAM friction test (limiting load >360 N). There is no ignition, explosion, self-heating or visible decomposition when musk xylene is heated (without confinement) to 75 °C for 48 hours.
Nevertheless, musk xylene is classified in the European Union as an explosive under the Dangerous Substances Directiveand as a category 1.1 explosive under the CLP Regulation. The European Union classification reflects the fact that hazardous heating under confinement cannot be excluded in the industrial use of musk xylene, as opposed to its transport, and so it is necessary to warn potential users of the risk. hot sale most effective big lump size raw musk fixative musk ambrette, on sale
