Notes: Foamed PVC has a self-extinguishing property. If ignited in air, it will die by itself. Subsequently, Foamed PVC complies with the most demanding fire resistance standards as indicated by these representative results.

The above tables cannot be directly compared due to the different test methods utilised, unless where indicated *. Relative density is stated for 3mm standard products.
