Chemical Resistance Guide

Download “Chemical Resistance Guide” as a PDF

The information contained in the Chemical Resistance Guide has been compiled from various literature references and sources. It may be considered as a basis for chemical resistance but not as a guarantee. It is strongly advised that specific Liquid-Tuff™ products be tested under actual service conditions to determine suitability. Liquid-Tuff samples for chemical resistance testing available upon request.
