ELASTOMER CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
TEMAX elastomer is a very inert material. TEMAX is highly resistant to a wide variety of chemicals and does not swell like other polymers when exposed to water. TEMAX elastomers are formulated to be very resistant to UV and Ozone as well. This is why TEMAX is perfectly suited for extreme environments and consistently outperforms other options.
The data tabulated below summarize the effects of a broad variety of fluids on Temax elastomers. As a general rule the resistance of Temax elastomers to fluids and chemicals increases as the polymer hardness increases. Unless otherwise noted the ratings shown in the table apply to all hardness grades.
