Stock #: HML419
This D.O.T. Corrosive shipping label paper label clearly identifies potential hazards like hydrochloric acid in a familiar design. This 4 inch x 4 inch, Department of Transportation corrosive dot shipping label conveys hazard information for containers or shipments of hazardous materials. The black graphics of the test tube spilling on a solid object and also onto a person's hand with the white reversed out text "CORROSIVE 8" clearly communicates "CORROSIVE". Flexible label stock with permanent adhesive. Printed with UV-stable ink and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use at service temperatures from -40 F to +180 F.
A corrosive material is a liquid or solid that causes full thickness destruction of human skin at the site of contact within a specified period of time. A liquid that has a severe corrosion rate on steel or aluminum based on the criteria in 49CFR 173.137(c)(2) is also a corrosive material.
Corrosive substances are substances that can dissolve organic tissue or severely corrode certain metals:
8.1 Acids: sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid
8.2 Alkalis: potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide

|Class 8 Packing Groups|
The packing group of Class 8 material is indicated in Column 5 of the 49CFR 172.101 Table. When the 49CFR 172.101 Table provides more than one packing group for a Class 8 material, the packing group must be determined using data obtained from tests conducted in accordance with the 1992 OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals, Number 404 "Acute Dermal Irritation/Corrosion" as follows:
|I||Materials that cause full thickness destruction of intact skin tissue within an observation period of up to 60 minutes starting after the exposure time of three minutes or less.|
|II||Materials other than those meeting Packing Group I criteria that cause full thickness destruction of intact skin tissue within an observation period of up to 14 days starting after the exposure time of more than three minutes but not more than 60 minutes.|
|III||Materials, other than those meeting Packing Group I or II criteria:
That cause full thickness destruction of intact skin tissue within an observation period of up to 14 days starting after the exposure time of more than 60 minutes but not more than 4 hours; or
That do not cause full thickness destruction of intact skin tissue but exhibit a corrosion rate on steel or aluminum surfaces exceeding 6.25 mm (0.25 inch) a year at a test temperature of 55°C (130°F). For the purpose of testing steel P3 (ISO 9328-1) or a similar type, and for testing aluminum, non-clad types 7075-T6 or AZ5GU-T6 should be used. An acceptable test is described in ASTM G 31-72.
