What plastics are compatible with acetone?

Rated Excellent

  • FEP.

  • PEEK.
  • Polypropylene.

What is resistant to sodium hypochlorite?

Alloy C – a high nickel-chromium molybdenum alloy that has outstanding resistance to a wide variety of chemical process environments, including strong oxidizers such as sodium hypochlorite, and ferric chloride. Alloy C is also resistant to nitric, hydrochloric, and sulfuric acids at moderate temperatures.

Does xylene react with plastic?

Take this as a word of warning: do not use xylene on plastics. I figure it’d be fine for metals, though.

Will xylene dissolve PVC?

Some commonly available solvents such as acetone, methylene chloride, trichloroethylene, toluene and xylene would dissolve PVC over time, although I could not tell you which would be the quickest (likely one of the chlorinated solvents).

What plastics are not affected by acetone?

According to Palstics International’s Chemical Resistance Chart, the A-rated plastics (no solvent attack) towards acetone are:

  • ECTFE (Halar®): transparent films available.
  • Fluorosint® PTFE: white.
  • HDPE: transparent films available.
  • Nylon®, Type 6/6: white.
  • PP: clear sheets available.
  • PPS: opaque white.
  • PTFE: white.

Is HDPE compatible with acetone?

Acetic Acid, glacial 50% LDPE and HDPE at 20C° show little or no damage after 30 days of constant exposure. LDPE at 50 C° – immediate damage may occur. Acetone LDPE and HDPE at 20C°-50C° – damage may occur. Not recommended for continuous use.

What material is resistant to chlorine?

Nylon stands up to chlorine much better than most other fabrics do, and it dries very quickly, but the combination of chlorinated water and sunlight will still cause the colour of this fabric to fade within one year of regular use in swimming pools. The best fabric for swimming pools is solution dyed acrylic or olefin.

What is polyphthalamide PPA?

Polyphthalamide. Polyphthalamide (aka. PPA, High Performance Polyamide) is a subset of thermoplastic synthetic resins in the polyamide ( nylon) family defined as when 55% or more moles of the carboxylic acid portion of the repeating unit in the polymer chain is composed of a combination of terephthalic (TPA) and isophthalic (IPA) acids.

What is the difference between aliphatic polyamides and PPAs?

Compared to aliphatic polyamides, PPAs offer improved The glass transition temperature of PPA increases as the amount of TPA increases. If more than 55% of the acid part of a PPA is made out of IPA, then the copolymer is amorphous.

Are there any chemical compatibility reference charts for plastic containers?

Chemical Resistance Reference Charts for Plastic Containers: We have several chemical compatibility reference charts to help you determine the appropriate resin for your specific chemical needs. Please note that these charts are for general reference only.

What are polyphthalamide resins used for?

Polyphthalamide based resins are injection moulded into parts that are used in a wide variety of applications. Automotive uses include fuel and coolant lines, pump wear rings, motor bobbin parts, fuel line connectors, water heater manifolds fuel modules, fuel cut-off valves, thermostat housing, air coolers, coolant pumps, and LED headlights.
