Class 1 Label: Orange Explosive Labels are used for the transportation of any chemical compound, mixture, or device which is designed to function by explosion, or is capable of producing an explosive or pyrotechnic effect. This includes many items from nitro-glycerine, blasting caps and ammunition, to airbag detonators, and party poppers.
Explosive substances are divided into six divisions according to the degree of risk. The class is further divided into 13 compatibility groups identified by a letter appearing in the centre of the diamond.
Explosive division 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 labels are used to identify highly hazardous explosives. The Class 1 label incorporates the explosive symbol, the division number (1.1, 1.2 or 1.2) and the letter which indicates the compatibility group. This group covers mass explosives such as dynamite/TNT, projection hazards such as detonating fuses and fire hazards such as flares and shotgun cartridges.
Explosive division 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 labels are the less hazardous divisions. These labels must only display the division number and compatibility group letter. The numerals printed on the label must be at least 30mm in height. This group covers insensitive articles and articles with no significant hazard i.e. safety fuses and fireworks
