Works well for my application

This app works well for helping you to determine if a particular elastomer will be compatible with the chemicals you are using in a machine. It is very helpful for choosing which material should be used for seals and O rings. It also works well for choosing a container for many different chemicals.

Pretty Good but Double Check

This is a great pocket reference, but some of the suggestions are in conflict with other sources. Example: Hastelloy-Cr (I'm assuming they are referring to the more common C-22 alloy) is listed as being is rated as D for ammonium chloride. Other references, including Emerson, give it an A rating, which is much more consistent with the properties of nickel-chromium alloys.


Beautiful app. I haven't killed anyone because of a chem incompatibility since I started using it!
