Why can paint be considered as “Dangerous Goods”?
Certain paints are regulated as Dangers Goods if they are in aerosol form, or, in the case of liquids, if they are flammable or corrosive.
Paints in aerosol forms are Dangerous Goods because of the pressurized gas used as a propellant in the can and therefore it is classified as a Class 2 with as UN 1950.
Paints have different chemical compositions as well. However, we can simplify them into two groups, water-based and oil-based. Although water-based paints are non-flammable, they may be corrosive, either acid or alkali. Certain oil-based paints can be flammable. If their flashpoint is less than or equal to sixty (60) degrees Celsius (using the close-cup method), or 65.6 degrees Celsius (using the open-cup method), they are Regulated as Dangerous Goods.
In order to verify if your paint is regulated as Dangerous Goods or not, you can check the Safety Data Sheet (SDS), or contact one of our specialists at Logistic Complex.FAQ
