This Chemical Resistance Comparison chart is based on theoretical information available in literature about the chemical resistance of individual elastomers. It is provided as a general guide for qualified professionals who recommend, select, specify or otherwise determine the suitability of products for worker safety. As such, the Chemical Resistance Comparison chart is advisory only and addresses the relative resistance of rubber, neoprene , and PVC to degradation by the listed chemicals. This chart does not address resistance to permeation. Permeation resistance of a particular elastomer cannot be inferred based on the chemical resistance information provided in this chart. The suitability of a product for specific application must be determined and tested by the purchaser. Nelson Shoe Store and Honeywell Safety Products a.k.a. Norcross Safety Products LLC assumes no responsibility for the suitability of an end user's product selection for a specific application.
