  • Eye: Mechanical irritation only.
  • Inhalation: inhaled and retained in the lungs.

Fire Fighting Measures

  • Flash ignition temperature: 260°C / 500°F
  • Unusual fire, explosion hazards: PVC will not continue to burn after ignition without an external fire source.
  • Hazardous combustion products: Burning liberates HCL gas.
  • Special fire fighting instructions: Fire fighters and others exposed to products of combustion should wear full protective clothing  including self-contained breathing apparatus. Fire fighting equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.
  • Extinguishing media: Water spray, CO2 or Foam extinguishing agent.
