On-Site Packing of Class 6, Class 8, Class 9

Recent Project: Class 6, Class 8, Class 9 On-Site Packing

 

Are you stuck in a pickle with a large amount of dangerous goods and not sure how to properly package and transport them but also cannot have them leave your facility? DGM Boston offers on-site consultation, packing and shipping of dangerous goods that can’t leave a facility.

We recently completed an on-site packaging job for class 6, class 8, and class 9 pails. Each pail was affixed with labels indicating their DOT class number and UN numbers. The pails were then arranged on a pallet and securely shrink-wrapped. The outer layer of the shrink wrap featured labels displaying the DOT class numbers and UN numbers. Additionally, an “overpack” label was applied to the exterior of the shrink wrap.

 

On-Site Packing: Class 6 Poison & Toxic Substances

Under the DOT regulations, Class 6 is poison and toxic substances, and it is divided up into 2 different divisions. Division 6.1 covers toxic substances. This is any material in liquid or solid form that is toxic to humans. An example of division 6.1 is tear gas. Division 6.2 covers infectious substances. Some examples of this are medical waste and used health care products. The class 6 toxic label is a white diamond with an outer black outline. It also has the number 6 in the bottom corner. At the top of the label there is a skull.

 

The UN label for this class 6 product is:
