Chemical Resistance

See How Our Products Perform Under Exposure to Certain Chemicals

Although this information is based on sources we deem to be accurate, we do not guarantee any chemical will work with a particular product because we do not have control over the process in which they are used. Many factors effect the chemical compatibility of a material. Product specification should be done through field testing. P

*A designation of A, B, C or D is given to each chemical/ material pair. A denotes little to no adverse effect on material performance while D denotes severely adverse effects.

*Note: Material properties may be affected greatly by temperature, operating pressure, chemical concentration, the presence of other chemicals,
and other factors. Ultimately, users are expected to determine the compatibility of any product through field testing. This chemcial resistance chart is subject to change without notice.
