Chemical Resistance Chart

Bürkert resistApp supports you in your search for compatible materials and compiles information on the chemical resistance of elastomers, plastics and metals for a variety of gaseous and liquid media.

Bürkert ResistApp

To ensure the reliability and longevity of your products, handling liquid or gaseous fluids requires great care when selecting the materials that come into contact with the fluids. This applies in particular to aggressive fluids. Our online tool for testing material resistance helps you to select the right material. For example, you can evaluate the chemical resistance of stainless steel and plastics. Just give it a try. Determine your material resistance online now for free!

What is chemical resistance?

The term chemical resistance refers to the chemical resistance of materials. Thus it is the ability of a material to withstand destruction processes triggered by reactions between environment and surface. If a material is chemically stressed or if its chemical resistance is poor, this can lead to corrosion and accelerate the fracture of the material. In the case of components or machines made of this material, this has a negative effect on their service life or leads to their failure.
Basically, three categories can be distinguished:

  • chemically resistant (little or no impairment of the material)
  • conditionally chemically resistant (weak to moderate attack of the material)
  • chemically unstable (strong attack to complete destruction of the material)
