Fwd: [GreenYes] Flammability of plastic lumber?

>Date: Tue, 15 Oct 2002 17:24:08 -0700 (PDT)

>ASTM has a flammability rating for plastic lumber
>which is published.  Your associate could also contact
>the Plastic Lumber Trade Assoc. or check their web
>site.
>
>Plastic lumber, not PVC planking, will burn much like
>a candle.  Both are made from polyolyphins and the
>fumes are not toxic though they are not particularly
>good smelling.  In all the years I was involved with
>plastic lumber I can only remember one instance when
>fire was a problem and that was when someone set a
>small barbecue grill on top of a plastic picnic table.
