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.

For chemicals or chemical blends not listed on the above chart, please contact.
