PVC is mainly composed of polyvinyl chloride, which is bright in color, corrosion-resistant, strong and durable. It is a popular and widely used synthetic material in the world today. Its global usage ranks second among various synthetic materials. Among the materials that can produce three-dimensional surface films, PVC is the most suitable material.

The temperature that the PVC Becomes toxic:

PVC can only slowly decompose hydrogen chloride gas that is harmful to the human body at a continuous temperature of more than 130 degrees Celsius. However, the average temperature adapted to human skin and body is between 25 degrees Celsius and 35 degrees Celsius, and the release of harmful hydrogen chloride gas in PVC flooring requires a continuous high temperature environment of more than 130 degrees, so PVC flooring is harmless to the human body.
