Type C: An organic peroxide that, as packaged for transport, neither detonates or deflagrates rapidly and
cannot undergo a thermal explosion.
Type D: An organic peroxide which exhibits the following characteristics:
Detonates only partially, but does not deflagrate rapidly and is not affected by heat when confined.
Does not detonate, deflagrates slowly, and shows no violent effect if heated when confined.
Does not detonate or deflagrate, and shows a medium effect when heated under confinement.
Type E: An organic peroxide that neither detonates or deflagrates, and shows low or no effect when heated
Type F: An organic peroxide that will not detonate in a cavitated state, does not deflagrate, shows low or
no effect if heated when confined, and has low or no explosive power.
Type G: An organic peroxide that will not detonate in a cavitated state, will not deflagrate, shows no effect
when heated under confinement, has no explosive power, is thermally stable (self-accelerating
decomposition temperature above 60 degrees C (140 degrees F)); and, for desensitized liquid formulations,
is desensitized with a compatible organic liquid which boils above 150 degrees C (300 degrees F).
Class 6.1 (Poisonous Material)--A material, other than a gas, which is known to be so toxic to humans as to afford a
hazard to health during transportation, or is presumed to be toxic to humans because it falls within one of the test
categories identified in 49 CFR 173.132.
HClass 6.2 (Infectious Substances):
An infectious substance is a viable microorganism, or its toxin, which causes or may cause disease in
humans or animals, and includes those agents listed in 42 CFR 72.3 of the Department of Health and
Human Services regulations, or any other agent that has the potential to cause severe disabling or fatal
disease. The terms "infectious substance" and "etiologic agent" are synonymous.
Substances known or suspected of containing pathogens.
A biological product is a material prepared and manufactured according to 9 CFR, part 102 (Licenses for
Biological Products), 9 CFR, part 103 (Biological Products for Experimental Treatment of Animals), 9
CFR, part 104 (Permits for Biological Products), 21 CFR, part 312 (Investigational New Drug
Application), or 21 CFR, parts 600 to 800 (Biologics), and may be shipped according to this manual.
Class 7 (Radioactive Material)--Any material having a specific activity greater than 0.002 micro curies per gram
(uCi/g) (see definition of "specific activity").
Class 8 (Corrosive Material)--A liquid or solid that causes visible destruction or irreversible alterations in human
skin tissue on contact. If the packaging leaks, the liquid will have a severe corrosion rate on other materials such as
steel and aluminum. The main hazard from Class 8 liquids and vapors is the corrosive effect on humans and the
aircraft or cargo. Some Class 8 materials have very dangerous additional hazards such as toxicity, flammability, and
Class 9 Material--A material that may pose an unreasonable risk to health, safety, or property during transport, but
does not meet any of the definitions of the other hazard classes specified in this manual. This class includes:
A material that has an anesthetic, noxious, or other similar property which can cause extreme annoyance or
discomfort to passengers and crew in the event of leakage during transportation, so as to prevent the correct
performance of the crews assigned duties.
A material in quantities that meets the definition of a hazardous waste or a hazardous substance, but does
not meet the definition of any other class.
Combination Packaging--A combination of packaging, for transport purposes, consisting of one or more inner
packagings secured in a nonbulk outer packaging. It does not include a composite packaging.
Combustible Liquid--A combustible liquid is any liquid that does not meet the definition of any other classification
specified in this manual and has a flash point above 60.5 degrees C (141 degrees F) and below 93 degrees C (200
degrees F). Any mixture having one or more components with a flash point of 93 degrees C (200 degrees F) or
higher, that makes up at least 99 percent of the total volume of the mixture is not a combustible liquid.
