Polypropylene Chemical Compatibility Chart
This Polypropylene Chemical Compatibility Chart is a shorthand tool for describing the suitability of
miniature fluidic and pneumatic polypropylene components for use in contact with various chemicals. Use
this chart to help guide your component selection.
*Important note: Stress cracking is caused by a combination of tensile stress, a stress cracking chemical
and the inherent susceptibility of a thermoplastic like polypropylene to stress cracking. Stress cracking
chemicals include detergents, such as surfactants, lubricants, oils, ultra-pure water and plating additives
brighteners and wetting agents.
