Class 2 Gases
2.1 Flammable gases.
Gases which ignite on contact with an ignition source, such as acetylene and hydrogen.
2.2 Non-flammable, non-toxic gases.
Gases which are neither flammable nor poisonous.
2.3 Toxic gases.
Gases liable to cause death or serious injury to human health if inhaled, examples are fluorine, chlorine, and hydrogen cyanide.
