The chart below provides a guide to chemical compatibilities for UPVC, CPVC, FPM and EPDM.
Looking for how sodium hypochlorite performs with UPVC? Start searching by typing ‘hypo’ and it will filter to different concentrations and temperatures for that chemical (and others containing the same string of characters).
All data in this Charlotte Chemical Compatibility Guide has been kindly provided by our US partners, Charlotte Pipe Co and is for use as a general guide only. Fusion and Charlotte Pipe Co. accept no responsibility for the usage of this data. It is strongly recommended prior to purchasing products relating to this data, that you seek professional assistance / advice by contacting a Fusion representative. Data in this table has been localised by Fusion for the Australian market and temperatures have been rounded from Fahrenheit (˚F) to the nearest Celsius (˚C) degree.
