PTFE, FEP, PFA Chemical Resistance Chart G-Z
   

This chart is intended to be used as a general guide only.  Since each pair of ratings listed is for ideal conditions, all factors affecting chemical resistance must be considered.  First letter of each pair applies to conditions at 68F/20C, the second to those at 122F/50C.

  
LDPE = Low Density PolyethyleneFEP, PFA, PTFE = Fluoroplastics/Fluoropolymers
HDPE = High Density PolyethylenePC = Polycarbonate
PP/PA = Polypropylene/PolyallomerPVDC = Polyvinylchloride
PMP = PolymethylpentenePSF = Polysulfone
