Is PVC Toxic?

2019-05-11 17:22:17

PVC can pose a health hazard when it is burned as it emits hydrogen chloride (HCl) fumes. In applications where the likelihood of fire is high, PVC free electrical wire insulation is sometimes preferred. Fumes can also be emitted when melting the material (such as during prototyping and manufacturing processes like 3D printing, CNC machining, and injection molding). We recommend you take a look at the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for different chlorinated hydrocarbon gases like chlorobenzene and discuss the production process with a professional manufacturer.



What are the Advantages of Polyvinyl Chloride?
1.Polyvinyl Chloride is readily available and relatively inexpensive.
2.Polyvinyl Chloride is very dense and thus very hard and resists impact deformation very well relative to other plastics.
3.Polyvinyl Chloride has very good tensile strength.
4.Polyvinyl Chloride is very resistant to chemicals and alkalies.
What are the Disadvantages of Polyvinyl Chloride?



1.Polyvinyl Chloride has very poor heat stability. For this reason additives which stabilize the material at higher temperatures are typically added to the material during production.
2.Polyvinyl Chloride emits toxic fumes when melted and/or subject to a fire.
Although there are some shortcomings, Polyvinyl Chloride is a great material overall. It has a unique blend of qualities that make it particularly useful for the construction business.
