Flammable materials are demanded by law to exhibit visual identification according to P.O.P. regulations from 49CFR part 172.500. Whether international or domestic transit, shipments containing these lethal and dangerous materials need placard identification to ensure the safety of transportation lines around the world. FlipPlacards offers a diverse range of flammable placards for Classes 2, 3, and 4 hazardous materials. Two solutions allow you to label your shipments as Flammable materials. Both polycoated water resistant tagboards and long lasting self-adhesive removable vinyl placards are available for your picking. Flammable liquids, solids, and gases need to be labeled in the correct manner.
• Use either option to ensure your shipments abide by regulations and promote safety during transit.
• Don’t allow your shipment to pose a safety or legal risk, mark your containers with these flammable placards.
Our tagboard flammable placards are made of a 16 point board and printed flexographically with lightfast inks. They feature a water-resistant coating and last at least two years outside.
Q.What sizes are the flammable placards available in?
We offer flammable placards of a uniform size of 10.75” x 10.75”. The point-to-point measurement of these diamond-shaped placards is 15.2” x 15.2”.
Q.Are vinyl flammable placards reusable?
Yes. Vinyl flammable placards come with a removable adhesive that sticks to metal or fiberglass. These are great for temporary use on vehicles. Please note that the longer this placard is left in place, the stronger the adhesive bond will become.
Q.Should I opt for tagboard or self-adhesive vinyl material for flammable placards?
Both tagboard and vinyl placards are our premium offerings. Where tagboard placards are made from a 16 point thick board with a water-resistant tagboard coating, vinyl placards are 4.5 mil thick and tear-resistant. You may choose either, depending on your installation preferences. Tagboard placards fit into standard plastic or aluminum holders and are easily swappable. On the other hand, vinyl placards come with a removable adhesive (gets stronger with time) and can be directly applied to the truck.
Q.Where do I get placard holders from?
You can easily order placard holders during checkout as add-ons for your placards. You may also explore them here and choose from riveted, rivetless, economy, and ones with clipped corners.

Many of these placards carry unique UN numbers to identify specific materials further. You may refer to this federal resource for more precise details.
