Vinyl chloride odor
Jon, and the list:
I sent these postings privately to Jon because he is incorrect to assume that
the odor of plasticized PVC is vinyl chloride, and out of respect for him I
did not want to conduct that discussion in public. Clearly, this is now a
Monitoring done in processing facilities--like those making window
shades--shows vinyl chloride is always well below the OSHA action level (0.5
ppm), and usually is non detect at low ppb levels. You can't smell vinyl
chloride in a processing plant, never mind at home or in your car.
Therefore, I ask the list. Who has data that shows that Jon is correct that
a new windowshade in your home outgasses VCM to the extent that the odor is
detectable--never mind strong?
I've tried to be civil and helpful to people on this list, even if we usually
don't agree. If no one, including Jon, can produce this data, then I hope
Jon will consider an apology to me for an unnecessary personal attack.
