Although the transportation hazards of common petroleum products are generally well understood, new commodities often have unusual fire and explosion properties such as wide flammable range, low ignition temperature and foam incompatibility in addition to other hazards such as toxicity and dangerous reactivity. This manual provides a convenient reference guide listing properties and emergency procedures for bulk liquid cargoes. The manual contains 279 entries. It also contains information on the National Response Center, a brief description of the Chemical Hazards Response Information System and the Complete Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular No. 4-75. NVC No. 4-75 provides a thorough discussion of the compatibility of chemicals.
