Toxic materials are things that can cause ill health of some sort. Hazardous materials are materials that can cause any sort of undesired effect - catch on fire, explode, corrode, make you sick, etc.

All toxic materials are hazardous, but not all hazardous materials are toxic. There are by far too many to list them in this forum.
