The data below is the result of laboratory tests and is intended to serve only as a guide. No performance warranty is intended or implied. The degree of the chemical attack on any material is governed by the conditions under which it is exposed. Exposure time, temperature, and size of the area of exposure usually vary considerably in an application, therefore, this table is given and accepted at the user’s risk. Confirmation of the validity and suitability in specific cases should be obtained.
