Is pvc poisonous? Is PVC toxic?
PVC is polyvinyl chloride. Its resin raw material is originally non-toxic, but because plasticizers and other auxiliary agents need to be added during the production process, and some auxiliary agents are toxic, it is recommended not to use pvc plastic bags for food, especially those containing oil food. In addition, under high temperature conditions (about 50°C), polyvinyl chloride will gradually decompose the harmful gas-hydrogen chloride, so it is recommended not to use PVC for food packaging.
Dioxins (TCDD) produced by PVC in combustion are also the main hazards. Dioxins are the most dangerous substance in the series of dioxins. Dioxins are a well-known carcinogen and hormonal decomposition. And a toxic compound that can cause great harm to humans and animals. However, PVC generally produces dioxins when it is burning. Please do not approach the fire source when using PVC products.
On October 27, 2017, PVC was in the list of 3 carcinogens publicly released by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization.
