  •  
     
    Substances liable to spontaneous combustion
    Substances Liable to Spontaneous Combustion
     
  • Substances which are liable to spontaneous heating under normal conditions encountered in transport, or to heating up in contact with air, and being then liable to catch fire

    Substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases
    Substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases
     
  • Substances which, by interaction with water, are liable to become spontaneously flammable or to give off flammable gases in dangerous quantities
  •  
     
    Oxidizing Substances
    Oxidizing Substances
