Chemical Resistance

Note: The data provided in these tables are for reference and are not binding. We recommend conducting your own testing to be sure that the medium will be compatible with the pump tube material. 

Example Test: Place a sample pump tube in the medium to be delivered for 48 hours. If there is a loss in weight and / or elasticity the pump tube is not compatible. (Test Pump Tubes are available on request.)
