Test procedure

Chemical resistance in general means the resistance of materials against the influence of chemicals. Contrary to what happens in the case of corrosion no original material is lost here, which typically applies to plastics and elastomers.



The test is carried out by immersing the test sample into the chemical or by dripping, wiping, spraying or brushing the chemical onto the test sample. After a defined time and temperature, the test sample is cleaned and the surface checked for visual changes like discoloration, softening, cracks, blistering and others. We also send the test samples back uncleaned if the customer whishes so.
