CHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY

CHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY KEY AND USER NOTE:

DETAILED KEY:

Y = Products should be suitable for prolonged or repeated contact with these substances (under the specified conditions).

S = Products may be suitable for intermittent contact; however, some deterioration in properties may occur.
The user should perform qualification tests before or during usage of the container.

N = Substances aggressively attack the product or have vapor pressures incompatible with closed containers.

 

This report is offered as a guide and was developed from information, which, to the best of ENPAC’s knowledge, was reliable and accurate. Due to variables and conditions of application beyond ENPAC’s control, none of the data shown in this guide is to be construed as a guarantee, expressed or implied. ENPAC, LLC assumes no responsibility, obligation, or liability in conjunction with the use or misuse of the information.

The data shown is the result of laboratory tests obtained from leading chemical companies and independent reports that are intended to serve only as a guide. Testing is not conducted by ENPAC, LLC. No performace warranty is intended or implied. Confirmation of the validity and suitability in specific cases should be obtained. When considering flexible containment for specific applications, it is suggested that a fabric sample be tested in actual service before specification. Where impractical, tests should be devised which simulate actual service conditions as closely as possible.

Ratings are based on visual and physical examination of samples after removal from the test chemical. Results represent the material’s ability to retain its performance properties when in contact with the indicated chemical.

The degree of chemical attack on any material is governed by the conditions under which it is exposed. Exposure time, temperature, and size of the area of exposure usually varies considerably in application, therefore, this table is given and accepted at the user’s risk.
