Shipping Glasses Containing BaO

Shipping Glasses Containing BaO

Shipping Glasses Containing BaO

BaO is a DOT regulated compound (UN1564, packaging class 6.1, group III).  I want to ship a glass powder containing BaO.  Generally speaking glasses are like a solution but the components are bound up in the glass.  For this reason the solubility of glasses is usually very low.  I know that many vendors of glasses that contain BaO are shipping without hazardous material labeling. I would like to do the same but feel I need to know the justification for it.  If you have any experience in this area please let me know.
