Although the information in this chart was acquired from reputable sources, it should only be used as a guide in selecting a container and closure system. Because so many factors can affect the chemical
resistance of a material, in-house testing under actual conditions should be performed. WHEATON accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of this data or for any consequences resulting from its use.
