In inside metal containers each having a rated capacity of 1 L (1 quart) or less, or other inside
containers each having a rated capacity of 0.5 L (1 pint) or less, packed in strong outside packagings.
In inside containers, each having a rated capacity of 4 L (1 gallon) or less, packed in strong outside
packagings. This provision only applies if the flash point of the material is 23 degrees C (73 degrees
F) or higher.
Package flammable solids, except for charcoal briquettes, in inside containers having a net weight of 0.5 kg
(1 pound) each or less. Pack inside containers in strong outside packagings having a net weight of 11.3 kg
(25 pounds) each or less. See A3.3.8 for commercial form charcoal briquettes.
Package flammable compressed gases:
In inside containers, each having a water capacity of 118 ml, 7.22 cubic inches or less (4 fluid ounces
or less.) Pack inside containers in strong outside packagings.
In inside metal containers charged with a solution of materials and compressed gas or gases that are
nonpoisonous, meeting all of the following:
The capacity must not exceed 27.2 fluid ounces (50 cubic inches).
The pressure in the container must not exceed 1242 kPa (180 psig) at 54 degrees C (130 degrees F). If
the pressure is greater than 966 kPa (140 psig) at 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) but not over 160 psig
(1104 kPa) at 54 degrees C (130 degrees F), a specification DOT 2P inside metal container must be
used. If the pressure exceeds 1104 kPa (160 psig) at 54 degrees C (130 degrees F), an inside IP.7,
IP.7A, or IP.7B metal container must be used. In any event, the metal container must be capable of
withstanding, without bursting, a pressure of 1 1/2 times the equilibrium pressure of the contents at 54
degrees C (130 degrees F).
The liquid content of the material and gas must not completely fill the container at 54 degrees C (130
Pack the containers in strong outside packagings.
Each completed container filled for shipment must have been heated until the pressure in the container
is equivalent to the equilibrium pressure of the content at 54 degrees C (130 degrees F). There must
not be evidence of leakage, distortion, or other defect to the containers.
HA13.14. Air Bag Inflators, Air Bag Modules, Seat-belt Pretensioners, and Seat-Belt Modules. Item
classification as Class 9 or Division 2.2 must be approved by DOT according to 49 CFR 173.166. Package in an
Fiberboard (4G), wooden (4C1 or 4C2), reconstituted wood (4F), or solid plastic box (4H2) box.
Steel (1A2), aluminum (1B2), fiber (1G), or plastic (1H2) drum.
Steel (3A2) or plastic (3H2) jerrican.
A13.15. Asbestos (Hydrated Mineral Silicates.) Asbestos blue, brown, or white, includes any of the following
hydrated mineral silicates: chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite asbestos, tremolite asbestos, actinolite
asbestos, and every product containing any of these materials. Asbestos that is immersed or fixed in a natural or
artificial binder material (such as cement, plastic, asphalt, resins, or mineral ore) and manufactured products
containing asbestos are not subject to this paragraph. Asbestos must be loaded, handled, unloaded, and any
contamination of aircraft removed in such a manner that will minimize occupational exposure to airborne particles
released incident to transportation. Packaging must meet the general packaging requirements of A3.1. UN
specification packaging is not required. Package asbestos in:
A13.15.1. Rigid, leak tight packaging such as metal, plastic, or fiber drums.
A13.15.2. Bags or other nonrigid packaging that are dust and sift-proof. The packages must be palletized and
unitized by methods such as shrink-wrapping in plastic or wrapping in fiberboard secured by strapping.
A13.15.3. Bags or other nonrigid packaging that are dust and sift-proof in strong outside fiberboard or wooden
HA13.16. Polymeric Beads, Expandable and Plastic Molding Compound. Pack polymeric beads or granules,
expandable, evolving flammable vapor and plastic molding compound in dough, sheet or extruded rope form,
evolving flammable vapor in wood (4C1 or 4C2), plywood (4D), fiberboard (4G), or reconstituted wood (4F) boxes,
plywood drum (1D) or fiber drums (1G) with sealed inner plastic liners. Vapor tight metal or plastic drums (1A1,
1A2, 1B1, 1B2, 1H1 or 1H2) may also be used.
