STYROFOAM products contain a flame retardant additive to inhibit accidental ignition from a small fire source. STYROFOAM is, however, combustible and if exposed to an intensive fire may burn rapidly. During shipment, storage, installation and use STYROFOAM products should not be exposed to flames or other ignition sources. Fire classification is based on small scale tests, which may not reflect the reaction of the products in its end use state under actual fire conditions. STYROFOAM products should, when installed, be adequately protected from direct exposure to fire.
