Chemical Resistance
Guides

Determine the appropriate resin needed for your specific chemical needs by downloading Pipeline's Chemical Resistance Guides that contain chemical compatibility information and room temperature chemical resistance charts.

Ensure Product Perfection by Understanding How Chemicals Interact with Product Materials

Ensuring that chemicals are compatible with the resin you’ll use to manufacture your plastic packaging is a necessary step to avoid plastic product malfunction. Certain chemicals can significantly damage polymers or resins, so it’s important to understand the short-term and long-term effects after being exposed to specific chemicals. Damage from exposure can include severe cracking, loss of strength, discoloration, deformation, or permeation loss. Download our chemical compatibility and chemical resistance charts to avoid causing damage to your plastic containers and products.

PLEASE NOTE: These charts are for reference only. Many factors can affect the chemical resistance of a given plastic product, and it is your responsibility to test under your own conditions to ensure that the packaging you are using is fully compatible with your product.
