There is no dispute as to the combustibility potential of the human body, the difficulty arises as regards the source of the ignition.
Criteria for approval are based on soil removal, toxicity of the undiluted product, combustibility, VOC content, aquatic toxicity, biodegradability, and packaging (Green Seal, 2006).
The combustibility of the situation in France was further shown by the nasty little riot in the Gard du Nord in 2007, when a young man was arrested after exercising his inalienable right to punch two ticket inspectors in the face as they questioned his equally inalienable right to jump over the ticket barrier without paying his fare.

Though concrete possesses high compressive strength, stiffness, low thermal and electrical conductivity, low combustibility and toxicity, two characteristics, have limited its use: it is brittle and weak in tension.
Living organisms are not thermodynamically stable with respect to their environment, as shown by their general combustibility in air and the rapid decay of their structures upon death.
For substrates like metal, masonry, and drywall, which are effectively non-combustible in nature, the coatings need to either limit the combustibility of the substrate or insulate the substrate from the heat and extend the amount of time before the substrate starts to lose its physical properties.
From PVC comes its toughness (tensile elongation is in excess of 100% and impact strength is 118 ft/lb by the Charpy Unnotched test), chemical resistance (Kydex meets ASTM D-1784 specs for Type 1, Grade 2, rigid PVC), and a self-extinguishing combustibility rating.
