CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

Chemical Resistance Table - Low Density Polyethylene - Sasol Chemical Data Sheet for LLDPE

INTRODUCTION TO LLDPE DATA SHEET

The table in this document summarises the data given in a number of chemical resistance tables at present in use in various countries, derived from both practical experience and test results.
The chemical resistance table contains an evaluation of the chemical resistance of a number of fluids judged to be either aggressive or not towards low and high density polyethylene. This evaluation is based on values obtained by immersion of low and high density polyethylene test specimens in the fluid concerned at 20 and 60°C and atmospheric pressure, followed in certain cases by the determination of tensile characteristics.

A subsequent classification will be established with respect to a restricted number of fluids deemed to be technically or commercially more important, using equipment which permits testing under pressure and the determination of the “coefficient of chemical resistance” for each fluid. These tests will thus furnish more complete indications on the use of low and high density polyethylene products for the transport of stated fluids, including their use
under pressure.

SCOPE AND FIELD APPLICATION

This document establishes a provisional classification of the chemical resistance of low and high density polyethylene with respect to about 300 fluids. It is intended to provide general guidelines on the possible utilisation of low and high density polyethylene: – at temperatures up to 20℃ and 60℃
– in the absence of internal pressure and external mechanical stress (for example, flexural stresses, stresses due to thrust, rolling loads, etc.).
Sat. sol
Saturated aqueous solution, prepared at 20°C

DEFINITIONS, SYMBOLS AND ABBREVIATIONS

The criteria of classification, definitions, symbols and abbreviations adopted in this document are as follows: S = Satisfactory
The chemical resistance of low or high density polyethylene exposed to the action of a fluid is classified as “satisfactory” when the results of test are acknowledged to be “satisfactory” by the majority of the countries participating in the evaluation.
L = Limited
The chemical resistance table of low or high density polyethylene exposed to the action of a fluid is classified as “limited” when the results of tests are acknowledged to be “limited” by the majority of the countries participating in the evaluation. Also classified as “limited” are the resistance to the action of chemical fluids for which judgements “S” and “NS” or “L” are pronounced to an equal extent.

NS = Not satisfactory
The chemical resistance table of low or high density polyethylene exposed to the action of a fluid is classified as “not satisfactory” when the results of tests are acknowledged to be “not satisfactory” by the majority of the countries participating in the evaluation.
Also classified as “not satisfactory” are materials for which judgements “L” and “NS” are Sol Aqueous solution at a concentration higher than 10 %, but not saturated
