Chemical Resistance of Plastics



E = excellentThis plastic is totally resistant to that substance.
G = goodInfluence of that substance for an extended period of time does not cause any or only small defects.
P = partially resistantIf exposed to constant influence, the plastic might possibly lead to hairline cracks and a reduced mechanical strength or discoloration.
N = non-resistantPlastics are not suitable for use in combination with this substance. Application is not recommended.
 - = unknownno tests available
