Chemical Resistance Table for Diaphragms
Tefzel® Chemical Resistance and Mechanical Properties
*This link will take you to the DuPont website.
The elastomer material ratings in this section are provided courtesy of
DuPont. These ranges are designed to help in the evaluation of diaphragm
materials for Resistoflex Diaphragm Valves. Please note that the ratings
apply to the brand name materials listed and should not be used to
evaluate generic materials due to elastomer formula and quality
PTFE 1-piece and 2-piece diaphragms are relatively inert. PTFE diaphragms
can be selected using the same ratings, permeation, and ESC comments as
apply to Resistoflex Plastic-Lined Piping Products with one exception.
PTFE, Viton®** fluoroelastomer, and Nordel® diaphragms are limited to 300°F and pressures at
or below 150 psig due to valve construction. Hypalon®** diaphragms are
limited to 225°F, and Neoprene diaphragms are limited to 200°F.
||A - Fluid has little or no effect
B - Fluid has minor to moderate effect
C - Fluid has severe effect
T - No data - likely to be compatible
X - No data - not likely to be compatible
NR - Not recommended
Blank indicates no evaluation has been attempted
1Unless otherwise noted, concentration of
aqueous solutions are saturated. All ratings are at room temperature unless
