LCS Laboratory Inc., offers a complete set of laboratory tests for classification of flammable solids for Transportation of Dangerous Goods. As a part of our services we offer a laboratory test for identification of water reactive products and measurement of gas emission rate. The test is performed in strict compliance with Canadian TDG regulation using UN-approved testing procedure. Gas flammability can also be tested, if necessary.
Water reactive solids can be both organic and inorganic. Many powdered metals, amalgams, metal hydrides, sulfides and other anhydrous salts are often water-reactive. Organometallic compounds and anhydrides react with water, and often violently. If your product belongs to one of the above classes, please call us in order to discuss the test.
