    • (3) The following definitions apply in these Regulations.

      explosive substance

      explosive substance  means a solid or liquid substance — or a mixture of solid and liquid substances — that is capable, by chemical reaction, of producing a gas at a temperature, pressure and speed that is capable of causing damage to surrounding structures or infrastructure. It includes a substance — or a mixture of substances — that is designed to produce an effect of heat, light, sound, gas or smoke, or a combination of such effects, by means of a non-detonative self-sustaining exothermic chemical reaction, even if the substance or mixture does not produce a gas. (matière explosive)


  4. Explosives Regulations, 2013 - SOR/2013-211 (TABLE : Tests for Authorizing Explosives)


    • 1 Tests for physical properties — including consistency, reaction rate, rate of moisture-absorption, tendency for separation, exudation, behaviour at both high and low temperatures, density and specific gravity

    • [...]

    • 3 Tests for stability — including the determination of the stability of the explosive by subjecting it to varying environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, that might produce spontaneous ignition of the explosive or a variation of its sensitivity
