Chemical Compatibility

This chemical resistance chart is intended for use as a guide, not as a guarantee of chemical compatibility. Variations in temperature, concentrations, durations of exposure and other factors may affect the performance of the product. It is recommended to test under your own conditions.

The following codes are used to rate chemical resistance:

R = RecommendedL = Limited ExposureNR = Not RecommendedU = Unknown
