Title Setting of emergency exposure limits for pyrolysis products of polyvinyl chloride materials
Original title Obosnovanie avarijnyh predelov vozdejstvija produktov gorenija polivinilhloridnyh materialov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Aug. 1984, No.8, p.52-54. 7 ref.
Abstract Description of a method for determining the "saturation point" of materials (SP), i.e. the maximum amount of materials which, when burning, will not yield enough combustion products to cause death or serious injury to people during their emergency evacuation, and the emergency exposure limits (EEL) for the main substances produced by the combustion of these materials. The SP for polyvinyl chloride is 7.3g/m3 and the EELs are 60▒10mg/m3 for carbon monoxide, 950▒290mg/m3 for carbon dioxide, 124▒49mg/m3 for hydrogen chloride.
