Chemical Compatibility Chart for Hoses

The ratings in this chart are based on the results of laboratory tests. They reflect the relative capabilities of various Teflon, silicone, PVC and rubber hose formulations to withstand specific chemicals. NOTE: The ratings in the chart DO NOT reflect the extent to which extraction may occur or the extent to which fluids may undergo any physical changes in properties or composition as a result of coming into contact with the hose. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics makes no representation or warranty with respect to the susceptibility of any fluid to become contaminated or undergo changes in properties or composition as a result of possible extraction of hose ingredients by the fluid to be transmitted. Certain corrosives that would be destructive to hose with prolonged exposure can be satisfactorily handled for short periods of time if flushed with water after use. All ratings are based on room temperature (73°F). Chemical resistance will be adversely affected by elevated temperatures.

Contact 800-826-8302 to shop hoses.

IMPORTANT: It is the users responsibility to ensure the suitability and safety of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics hose for all intended uses, including establishing the compatibility of any fluid with the hose through which it is to be transmitted. Laboratory, field or clinical tests must be conducted in accordance with applicable requirements in order to determine the safety and effectiveness for use of hose in any particular application.

E = EXCELLENT; G = GOOD; F = FAIR; X = NOT RECOMMENDED
