Does NFPA 30 (National Fire Protection Association’s Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code) apply to the Sani-24 Wipe?

March 16, 2022

NFPA 30 applies to the storage of flammable and combustible liquids. The Sani-24 Wipe is exempt from the requirements of NFPA 30 because the scope of NFPA 30 (Section 1.1) states that it applies to the storage, handling, and use of flammable and combustible liquids. Even though our products contain liquids that have been classified as flammable on the SDS, the wipes themselves are not classified as liquid products. Rather, they are wipes impregnated with flammable liquids, even though there may be a small amount of free liquid in the bottom of the canister. According to the EPA, wipes are classified as a mixture product containing solids and liquids. The NFPA has also confirmed that wipes are not considered to be liquid for the purposes of NFPA 30.
