PVC Ingredients

I got an unsolicited e-mail from a PVC manufacture in China listing the ingredients used in PVC they sell. If they happen to know I use a lot of PVC, showing me how much lead is in it is not the best marketing they could have used.

Is this typical of PVC, I though PVC was rated for potable water. Here is the e-mail below. They also included pictures of the raw ingredients -- bags of various colored powders.

I don't open unsolicited emails. They can be full of viruses, hacks, and other programs that will harm your computer.

You would be better off deleting them unopened.

I feel for you Windows users. Not something I have to worry about much on Linux. But thanks anyway. :c)

Good grief...

Why do mac and linux users constantly have to do that. Ohh wait, add the "vdub" folks to the list. "well my vdub is better than anything you have..."

I know (or hope) your only poking fun reefland.... but *nix has had it's share of vulnerabilities and continues to be riddled with them. If you look at the real numbers, the mac does not fare so well either. Public perception and media opinion are rarely correct. Then again if we were all still using lynx as a web browser and pounding away at a command prompt...

Enjoy

Reminds me of the commercial;

I'm a PC and I'm a Mac....
