can burn rapidly and give off large quantities of thick, dark smoke and toxic gases leading to confusion, incapacitation or
even death. Do not expose polyurethane foam to any intense radiant heat or open flame such as burning cigarettes, space heater,
naked lights, electric sparks or other similar heat sources. If Polyurethane foam is involved in a fire situation, do not
attempt to extinguish the fire yourself, immediately sound the alarm, leave the area, and notify the local fire department.
Suitable warnings should be passed on to product users. Comprehensive burning characteristics and safe handling of polyurethane
