symbol N Dangerous for the environment(like e.g. Turpentine, Lead, Crude oil )
symbol E Explosive (like e.g. picric acid, nitroglycerin, acetone peroxide )
symbol F Flammable (like e.g. Hexamine, Gasoline, Acetone )
symbol F+ Extremely Flammable (like e.g. Propane, Butane, Carbon Disulfide, Ethanal )
symbol Xn Harmful (like e.g. Ethanal, Naphtha, Hexamine, Butane )
symbol Xi Irritant (like e.g. Acetone, Ethanol, Sodium hypochlorite )
symbol O Oxidizing (like e.g. Oxygen, Nitric acid, Hydrogen peroxide, Potassium permanganate )
symbol T+ Very toxic (like e.g. White phosphorus, Nicotine, Prussic acid, Carbon monoxide, white phosphorus )
