Caution Notice

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.
