Chemical Resistance Guide
The following guide has been prepared by Kuriyama to assist the user in the selection of the correct hose for the application. The recommendations are based on the best chemical data available at the time of printing. This guide will be continuously reviewed and new information added as it becomes available.
A material’s resistance to the effects of a chemical depends not only upon the particular chemical, but also on other factors such as length of exposure, service temperature, pressure, fluid velocity and the relative concentration of each component in multi-component mixtures. Therefore, no guarantee is expressed or implied.
The chemical resistance ratings for materials are based on pure material samples and may not take into account specific factors related to the material when used in a hose or tube. It is always advisable that the product be tested under actual conditions.
Additionally, the Chemical Resistance Guide which follows does not imply conformance to any food handling regulations or federal or state/provincial laws governing hose and tubing applications.
Before using any hose/tubing product with any chemical substance the user must determine the suitability of the product for his/her intended use. The user assumes all risk and liability for the use of any product with any chemical or other substance.
