CHEMICAL & CORROSION RESISTANCE GUIDE

Gathered from laboratory testing, field service performance and extrapolated values, based on our resin manufacturer’s recommendations, this data is meant to serve as a guide only.

An FRP laminate’s suitability is affected by the following conditions:

• Periodic changes in temperature
• Temperature Spikes
• Changes in chemical concentrations
• Combination of chemicals
• Exposure to vapors only
• Exposure to frequent or intermittent splashes and/or spills
• Frequency of maintenance wash down
• Load bearing or non-load bearing requirements
