Chemical Resistance Guide
Concentration of the chemicals listed in the tables are assumed to be those that are typically used in industrial applications unless otherwise indicated. Concentration percentages are weight percentages. When a maximum temperature is shown it indicates the highest temperature for which data is available.
Recommended operating temperatures relate only to the chemical compatibility at these temperatures. Mechanical considerations must also be taken into account.
Chemical resistance data was obtained from numerous sources in the industry. It should be noted that the ‘R’ rating does not mean or imply that material will necessarily perform within original specifications. The chemical resistance guide should be used for guidance only and not as a guarantee of chemical compatibility. We do not assume any liability for the accuracy or completeness of information. The use contemplated by any user and the manner of use is the sole responsibility of the user. It is recommended that the users should perform their own tests to determine final suitability.
|Abbreviation||Generic Name||Maximum Operating Temperature (°C.)|
|304 SS||304 Stainless Steel||200|
|316 SS||316 Stainless Steel||200|
|R||Recommended for most conditions up to the maximum operating temperature|
|Number (i.e. 93)||Recommended only to this indicated temperature (°C.)|
|TR||Fair, may be acceptable, but testing is recommended|
|R||No data available|
