For government research buildings, schools and universities, it is mandatory that laboratory piping and components passing through the return plenum space meet more stringent fire safety norms. Certain grades of PVDF meet the ASTM E-84 (25/50) requirement that allows materials exposed in plenums to be considered equivalent to non-combustible.

PVDF becomes attractive in these applications for waste drainage and process piping due to its high temperature capability to 150°C, excellent short-term chemical resistance to almost any chemical combination, lightweight and easy welding fabrication compared to metal or glass, and low cost compared to other material options that do all of the above, apart from meeting the 25/50 flame and smoke criteria.
