Chemical Resistance

Our compatibility filter serves as a General Guide and will show only the most suitable gasket materials with “excellent” resistance ratings, based on your chemical selection. The built-in data bank contains over 850 various chemicals to sort and compare with our in-stock gasket materials of Compressed Fiber, PTFE/Teflon®, flexible Graphite and Elastomers like Nitrile, EPDM, Silicone, Viton and many more.

Note that the maximum pressure, temperatures, and other mechanical properties of your application are as important as the ability to resist chemicals.

To compare your preferred materials, please select at least 2 materials and click on the “view comparison” button.


How to Use:

Click on the drop-down menu and select a chemical from the list, or type in the chemical in the search field. The suggested gasket materials will automatically populate in the page.
