Frequently Asked Questions:
Does ABS pipe burn?
ABS pipe is combustible and will burn.
What can cause ABS pipe to burn?
Heat and fire sources are essential to cause materials to burn. ABS pipe must be heated to over 870° F (465° C) before it will ignite. The types of wood commonly used in home construction have ignition temperatures around 500° F (260° C). These temperatures are well above ordinary room temperature and well below those generated by fire (over 1,000° F or 540° C).
Does ABS pipe produce smoke when burned?
When ABS pipe is installed as recommended, little if any smoke is produced during the early stages of a fire. If a fire is large enough, the ABS pipe will burn and produce black, sooty smoke.
What type of antifreeze protection is recommended for ABS pipe?
When necessary to protect traps and fixtures from freezing, do not use alcohol or petroleum products. Use only approved plastic pipe antifreeze packaged for this purpose or one of the following solutions:
1) 60%, by mass of glycerin in water.
2) 22%, by mass, of magnesium chloride in water. Strong solutions of common table salt (sodium chloride) may also be used.
What is the operating temperature range of ABS pipe?
Cellular Core ABS DWV pipe is designed to accommodate temperatures up to 180° F (82° C) that are encountered in household applications. Special consideration must be made for applications that run higher temperatures (such as commercial dishwashers).
