Chemical compatibility page

Always make an immersion test before choosing a tube material for critical applications. Immerse a short length of the tubing (always available from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology or its distributors) in a closed container of the fluid for 48 hours, and then examine it for signs of attack, swelling, embrittlement or other deterioration.
