PVC, a material that is not easily flammable
PVC is a material that is not easily flammable. It needs 150°C more than wood to burn. When burning, PVC releases hydrochloric gas that, combined with air humidity, gives hydrochloric acid. During a fire, hydrochloric acid provokes eye, nose and mouth irritations, which allows revealing the fire and giving the alert. Its level always remains below the level dangerous for the health of the occupants.
