Plasticlad® PVC trim is derived from Plasticlad® sheet, a perfect blend of user friendliness and environmental compatibility.

Plasticlad® sheets are extruded using safe Organotin heat stabilizers which exhibit low toxicity and little tendency to migrate from PVC. Tin stabilizers added during formulation also exhibit low volatilization during normal processing conditions as well as under severe use conditions. Plasticlad® sheet and Plasticlad® PVC trim are free of conventional Lead, Barium, Cadmium and Zinc compounds and pose low risk to manufacturers, sheet processors, consumers and aquatic life. These materials are suitable for use where foods contact surfaces and are readily recyclable.

  Extinguishing Media
Special Fire
Dry chemical, foam, water, or carbon dioxide.
  Fighting Procedure In the event of fire, wear NIOSH approved, positive Pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Full protective clothing. Evacuate all personnel from danger area. Use dry chemical, foam, water or carbon dioxide to extinguish fire.
  Unusual Fire and Explosion PVC will not continue to burn after ignition without an external fire source. However,
when forced to burn the gaseous products of the combustion of PVC are carbon
monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen chloride.
