					Combustible Liquids
 Combustible   liquid is any liquid
  having a flashpoint at or above 100
  deg. F.
 Combustible liquids shall be divided
  into two classes as follows:
  – Class II Liquids
  – Class III Liquids
Class II Liquids
 Class II liquids include those with
 flashpoints at or above 100 deg. F.
 and below 140 deg. F., except any
 mixture having components with
 flashpoints of 200 deg. F.or higher,
 the volume of which make up 99
 percent or more of the total volume
 of the mixture.
Class III Liquids
 ClassIII liquids include those with
 flashpoints at or above 140 deg. F.
 Class III liquids are subdivided into
 two subclasses:
  – Class IIIA liquids
  – Class IIIB liquids
Class IIIA Liquids
 Class IIIA liquids include those with
 flashpoints at or above 140 deg. F.
 and below 200 deg. F., except any
 mixture having components with
 flashpoints of 200 deg., or higher,
 the total volume of which make up
 99 percent or more of the total
 volume of the mixture.
Class IIIB Liquids
 ClassIIIB liquids include those with
 flashpoints at or above 200 deg. F.
Flammable Liquids
   Flammable liquid is any liquid having a
    flashpoint below 100 deg. F. except any
    mixture having components with
    flashpoints of 100 deg. F. or higher, the
    total of which make up 99 percent or
    more of the total volume of the mixture.
    Flammable liquids shall be known as
    Class I liquids. Class I liquids are divided
    into three classes as follows:
Flammable Classifications

 Class IA includes liquids having
  flashpoints below 73 deg. F. and
  having a boiling point below 100
  deg. F.
 Class IB includes liquids having
  flashpoints below 73 deg. F. and
  having a boiling point at or above
  100 deg.
                                   Continue
Flammable Classifications

 ClassIC includes liquids having
 flashpoints at or above 73 deg. F.
 and below 100 deg. F.
