BUY BRICK ACID
Brick Acid packaging and labelling is dependent upon the concentrations of the particular strength of Brick Acid . Brick Acid is often supplied in a number of different concentrations; typically, Regular Strength Brick Acid is about 15%, whilst High Strength Brick Acid is about 30%.
Both Regular Strength Brick Acid and High Strength Brick Acid should be packed in UN approved plastic containers, often of 1 litre, 5 litre and 25 litre size. Those is 1 litre packs are classed as Limited Quantities for Transport but will still need to be supplied in UN approved containers.
Brick Acid is packaged according to its chemical and physical properties. The material in contact with the product must be able to withstand its Corrosive nature. Whilst UN approved plastic containers are generally used to package smaller quantities of Brick Acid, the product can also be packaged in drums and IBC's (Intermediate Bulk Containers) of 1,000 litres and road tankers can also be used to transport larger amounts of Brick Acid.
Plastic containers used to package Brick Acid will either be of UN 'stand-alone' type which require no extra outside packaging, or they can be part of a 'combination pack' where the outer carton is UN approved. Either way, the package must carry all UN markings when above the Limited Quantity for Transport.
Outer packagings can also be made of other materials provided that they are compatible. For example, plywood or other plastics can be used. There are limits to the packaging weight which depend on the Packing Group. For Brick Acid Packing Group II, the maximum capacity for combination packs is 400kg. Drums sizes can go up to 450 litres and jerricans up to 60 litres.
Classification of Brick Acid can be either according to CHiP (Chemicals Hazard Information and Packaging) for Supply Regulations or CLP 1272/2008 (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) Regulation. Both of these formats may be used on their own but not mixed on the label design. CHiP can be used up to 1 June 2015, after which CLP takes over. Alternatively, CLP can be used before this date.
