BUY BRICK ACID
Brick Acid is classified as Corrosive for Transport, which is Class 8, Packing Group II, UN Number 1789. Brick Acid is transported under the proper shipping name of Hydrochloric Acid Solution. This applies to concentrations of Brick Acid at Regular Strength of approximately 15% concentration, and High Strength of approximately 30% concentration.
There are Limited Quantities for hazardous goods, up to which the full transport rules do not apply. In this case it is 1 litre. The marking for Limited Quantities of Brick Acid is a white diamond with the UN Number indelibly marked inside. This must be marked in a size of at least 6 mm high.
Above Limited Quantities, the package must be marked with a Class 8 'Corrosive' diamond and the UN Number. Transport documents must be carried above Limited Quantities which describe the load. When the load exceeds 333 litres, then Instructions in Writing must be carried and the vehicle marked with orange plates according to ADR rules.
Drivers must always have training appropriate to the hazardous goods being carried and carry emergency equipment on the vehicle. Brick Acid Regular Strength and Brick Acid High Strength should only ever be handled by competent persons who have made themselves familiar with the potential risks and hazards of working with or handling Brick Acid.
Containers used to carry Brick Acid vary but are often made of plastic for small receptacles of 1 litre, 5 litre and 25 litre. Brick Acid can also be transported in drums or IBC's (Intermediate Bulk Containers) of 1,000 litres. Additionally, Brick Acid can be carried by road tanker.
Classification of Brick Acid is governed either by CHiP (Chemicals Hazard Information and packaging) for Supply Regulations or CLP 1272/2008 (Classification, labelling and Packaging) Regulations. Either of these formats may be used on their own but they may not be mixed on the label. CHiP can be used up to 1 June 2015, although CLP is effective from 1 December 2010. This is because a period of 5 years is being allowed as a 'crossover' period. Further information on Brick Acid Labelling requirements can be found on the relevant page of this website, including details of the relevant Risk and Safety Phrases and Hazard Statements applicable to Brick Acid.
