  • Class I Flammable gases or liquid vapors
  • Class II Ignitable metal, carbon or organic dusts
  • Class III Ignitable fibrous materials
  • Group Ratings:

    Groups define substances by rating their explosive or ignitable nature in relation to other known substances.

    Typical Class I Substances:

  • Group A Acetylene
  • Group B Hydrogen or >30% hydrogen by volume
  • Group C Ethyl, ether and ethylene
  • Group D Propane
  • Typical Class II Substances:

  • Group E Aluminum, magnesium and alloys
  • Group F Carbon, coke and coal
  • Group G Flour, grain, wood, plastic and chemicals
  • Division Ratings:

  • Divisions define the degree of hazard by determining an explosive or ignitable substance’s expected concentration in the atmosphere.
  • Division 1 Contains substances under normal conditions
  • Division 2 Contains substances under abnormal conditions
  • Notes:

  • Division 1 areas must be surrounded by Division 2 areas.
  • Class II, Group E areas must be rated as Division 1 areas.
