The Unex Chemical Compatibility Guide data below provides a guide to chemical compatibilities with rigid PVC. The chemical behaviour of rigid PVC is described in different standards:
- DIN 8061. Rohre aus weichmacherfreiem Polyvinylchlorid (PVC-U)- Allgemeine Güteanforderungen, Prüfung (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U) pipes – General quality requirements and testing)
- ISO/TR 10358. Plastics pipes and fittings – Combined chemical-resistance classification table
The contents of the mentioned standards are regulated by copyright rights and permissions. We are not entitled to reproduce the contents or to provide copies of those standards.
Looking for how sulphuric acid performs with PVC? Start searching by typing ‘sul’ and it will filter to different concentrations and temperatures for that chemical (and others containing the same string of characters).
All data in this Unex Chemical Compatibility Guide has been kindly provided by our Spanish partners, Unex aparellaje eléctrico, S.L. from PVC manufacturer data and is for use as a general guide only. Fusion and Unex 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.
