Our Chemical resistance guide is designed as a comprehensive tool to aid piping system material selection for chemical applications.
Many piping systems are required to convey chemicals. Therefore, it is vital that the correct piping material is installed. Our experienced Company Chemist is able to provide guidance on the most appropriate material for your specific application. Specialist advice is always recommended.
Customers are asked to bear in mind that this chemical resistance data is based on laboratory exposure testing. It cannot replicate all of the conditions of any given full-scale installation (pressure variation and surges, temperature cycling, concentration changes, etc.). For this reason, it is not possible to offer a process guarantee.
Whilst this data presented is a useful guide to material suitability, it does not cover the many trade chemicals in use or formulations involving mixtures of chemicals.
