Docs and info
In case of fire, well maintained early warning smoke detectors will give an alarm long before non-metallic coverings become combustible.However, in spite of the widespread and long-standing use of PVC in residential and commercial buildings, all purchasers of PVC insulated/ jacketed products should be aware of the following:
- Non-metallic coverings of electrical cables can burn and may transmit fire when ignited.
- Burning non-metallic coverings may emit acid gases which are toxic and may generate dense smoke.
- Emission of acid gases may corrode metal in the vicinity; e.g. sensitive instruments and reinforcing rods in cement.
