Chemical Resistant Chart

Denver Rubber Company offers this chart as a general guide for reference only. Many factors may affect the resistance of the material such as: temperature, grade of the polymer, compound and durometer. For specific information please contact us at: sales@drcfirst.com or 303-722-2833.
 

Chart Key

A – Recommended – Little or minor effect
B – Minor to moderate effect – Rubber parts probably still useful in many applications
C – Moderate to severe effect – Rubber parts perhaps still useful in limited applications
U – Not recommended
ND/IE – No data or insufficient evidence – It should be noted that it is not expected that a polymer unrated would perform better than those that are rated.
