1. The importance of PVC baseboards

Whether you are receiving decoration for a project or renovating a home interior, the application of skirting products is an essential material. They are mainly used at the junction of the wall and the floor. They not only provide decorative functions for the wall but also protect the wall and hide the gaps between the wall and the floor. Some innovatively designed skirting boards, also have the function of hiding wires and providing auxiliary lighting through embedded LED light strips. Because of its lightweight material, easy installation, waterproof and moisture-proof, non-flammable, and easy to clean, it is widely used in various construction projects.

2.What are the uses of PVC baseboards?

2.1 Protect the wall base to avoid damage due to collision

2.2 Hide the gap between the wall and the floor to prevent dust from falling into it

2.3 Provide exquisite decorative effects for indoor walls

2.4 Hide indoor wires to make the indoor space look tidier and cleaner

2.5 Provide auxiliary lighting through embedded LED lighting strips

3.The material composition of PVC baseboards

3.1 PVC resin powder

3.2 Calcium carbonate

3.3 Other additives, etc.

4.The factors affecting the fire protection of PVC baseboards

The fireproof and non-flammable properties of PVC baseboards mainly come from two main factors. The following is a detailed analysis:


4.1 PVC material


Because the main material in PVC baseboards is polyvinyl chloride, they are mainly made of vinyl chloride monomer through the polymerization reaction. Its molecular structure contains chlorine, which makes it have certain flame-retardant properties.

4.2 Flame retardants


Certain flame retardants are added during the manufacturing process of PVC baseboards. These flame retardants include brominated flame retardants, magnesium oxide, aluminum phosphate, etc.


These flame retardants can slow down the burning speed of PVC materials and reduce the risk of fire through decomposition and gas phase reaction when a fire occurs.


Therefore, by combining the materials of PVC baseboards and analyzing the characteristics of their materials, we can know that PVC baseboards are non-flammable and self-extinguishing when left in the fire, so they have a certain fire protection effect.

5.Fire performance testing of PVC baseboards

Based on the material composition of PVC baseboards, we can know that they have certain combustion-supporting properties and are self-extinguishing when removed from fire. But to get a definite conclusion, we need to do further demonstration through experiments to ensure that the conclusion obtained is accurate.



6.Classification of fire protection levels

6.1 Class A non-combustible type

6.2 B1 level flame retardant type

6.3 Class B2 flammable type

6.4 Class B3 flammable type


These PVC baseboards can meet B1-level flame retardant standards.

7.Conclusion

To summarize, PVC baseboards are fire-resistant and self-extinguishing when removed from fire. Therefore, in commercial and residential spaces, prioritizing the use of these non-flammable PVC baseboards can better protect our safety and provide adequate protection for our lives and property.
