English term or phrase:catalytic hazards
The material is supplied in a stable condition and other than the previously mentioned catalytic hazards of this material, no specific reactive hazards are known.
Explanation: I've never heard the Eng. term before
In the presence of certain other substances, this material (whatever it is) can act as a catalyst, i.e. it can trigger/accelerate other reactions which are probably not desirable and which constitute a hazard.
So I reckon they're talking about the danger of the material catalysing a reaction (i,e, acting as a catalyst).
Can't think of a short way of putting it in German, but maybe this will help someone else.
