Título Fire hazards of calcium hypochlorite.
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1975, Vol.1, No.1, p.83-94.
Resumen About a dozen fires and explosions of calcium hypochlorite occurred aboard British ships during the 5-year period 1969-73. This led to investigation of the accidents and of the composition and properties of the commercial material. Impurities in the product, contaminants introduced later, and heat due to storage or reaction may contribute to the instability. The material appears to be more hazardous than indicated by its classification in the IMCO Code as oxidising agent in Class 5.1. Storage on deck is recommended. Further study of the cause of the instability is required.
