Is PVC Foam Board Toxic?
PVC foam board is made of non-toxic and environmentally friendly polyvinyl chloride resin and other additives through extrusion manufacturing process.
It is non-toxic and odorless, and does not contain heavy metal components such as lead, barium, zinc and cadmium.
PVC foam board is RoHS compliant.
Every year, we send our PVC foam boards to SGS laboratory for RoHS testing as a routine or according to customer requirements. The screenshot below is part of the test report. As shown, our PVC foam sheet is RoHS compliant.
PVC foam board is formaldehyde-free.
Customers who use PVC foam board as indoor furniture usually care about its formaldehyde problem. Common wooden boards such as particle board, MDF and plywood contain formaldehyde because glue is their component and is necessary in production. And formaldehyde comes from glue.
The production of PVC foam board does not use glue at all, that is, it does not contain formaldehyde.
Therefore, PVC foam board is generally considered to be safe and non-toxic when used as intended. However, like with any material, it is important to handle and use expanded PVC foam according to the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines. In its raw form, PVC foam may release some fumes, but these are typically not harmful to humans. However, if PVC foam is burned, it can release toxic fumes, so it should not be incinerated or exposed to high heat. Overall, as long as proper handling and safety measures are followed, expanded PVC foam is considered to be a safe and practical material for various applications.
