Chemical resistance chart 

Rubber elastomers are formulated to handle many diverse chemicals. The following Chemical Resistance Chart assists in the selection of the proper elastomer for the application conditions.

The following data has been compiled from generally available sources and should not be relied upon without consulting and following Texcel’s specific chemical recommendations. Neglecting to do so may result in failure of the material to fulfill its intended purpose, and might result in property damage and/or serious injury.

Special care should be taken with chemical hose. Do not use chemical hose at temperatures or pressures above those recommended by Texcel. All operators must be thoroughly trained in the care and use of chemical hose. In addition, operators must wear protective clothing and eyewear at all times. A hose or system failure may lead to the release of poisonous, corrosive and/or flammable materials.

Chemical resistance charts are only a guide and should be used as such. The degree of resistance of an elastomer to a material depends upon variables such as temperature, concentration levels, working pressure, flow velocity, duration of use, among other variables. The compound should be tested under actual service conditions to ensure compatibility.
