Plastic materials that resist chemical attack
Plastics are used for applications that require exposure to acids, bases, solvents, and other industrial chemicals. When selecting a plastic material for use in a chemical environment, it’s important to consider key factors like the concentration of chemicals, the operating temperature range, and mechanical load.
A number of plastics including polyolefins, fluoropolymers, and PEEK have outstanding chemical resistance. Contact Curbell to discuss plastics in a chemical environment.
