Chemical Resistance Recommendation Chart

Note

Ambient Temperature

Chart applies to Industrial ASTM designed tanks

* = Chemical may cause tank material to discolor

** = 316SS may pit upon drying. Not recommended for SUMOs

High purity chemical applications are limited to natural tank color or special hotcompounded resins.
