This guide is designed to offer an indication of the compatibility of the main types of plastic and rubber in various chemicals at differing levels of concentration and temperature.
+ = RESISTANT
The material, when used in suitable applications, is unaffected or marginally affected and is acceptable for use.
0 = CONDITIONALLY RESISTANT
The medium may cause a change in the properties of the material (such as swelling of the seals) and factors such as valve location, pressure, temperature, etc also become more critical. We suggest that you contact CPP for confirmation.
X = NOT RECOMMENDED
The material is unsuitable.
An empty box = INSUFFICIENT/NO INFORMATION AVAILABLE
Please remember that the information contained in these charts is for guidance purposes only. The information is primarily about HydraMotion materials, which may vary from those of a more ‘general’ nature. The information should be considered as a basis for use but not as a guarantee of resistance or performance.
Changes in the composition of the medium and specific application details (such as pressure, temperature, environment, location, etc) may affect the durability of the HydraMotion product. In such instances, we recommend that a HydraMotion product be tested in an existing installation for a suitable trial period to determine suitability for a specific purpose.
No guarantees can be given in respect of the information contained in this chart. The data shown is based upon the information available at the time of printing and may change. It is also reliant on information received from raw material and component suppliers, which we are not able to verify. Many of the tests were undertaken under laboratory conditions and will not include external and environmental conditions, installation details, mechanical conditions, etc.
The HydraMotion Chemical Resistance Guide is being continuously updated with new information based upon our experience with existing and new chemicals.
