Chemical Resistance Chart for HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)

Chemical Resistance Classification:

  • E - 30 days of constant exposure to reagent causes no damage
  • G - Little or no damage after 30 days of constant exposure to the reagent
  • F - Some effect after 7 days exposure to the reagent. Solvents may cause swelling and permeation losses
  • N - Not recommended for continuous use

First letter of each pair applies to conditions at 20°C (68°F); the second to those at 50°C (122°F).
