Summary table of inflammability and explosive characteristics of dust
One key point to remember when carrying out a dust explosion risk analysis is that as soon as a material can be oxidized, which means ignited, then it presents a risk of dust explosion.
It is necessary to gather those data through experiments which should be carried out by reputable safety institutes. These data should be part of the MSDS of products, but are sometimes missing, incomplete or not very reliable prompting the need for new tests.
