What is the Chemical Resistance Guide?


The Chemical Resistance Guide (CRG) is a resource to help you choose the best elastomer for your application.  The CRG is divided into three sections. In Introduction to Elastomers there is basic information about elastomers and the properties that are important when selecting them.




In the General Chemical Resistance Guide, DuPont worked with the Los Angeles Rubber Group (TLARGI) to update its valuable "Chemical Resistance Guide," which has been an industry resource. With over 1,000 chemicals, you will find performance ratings of 20 elastomers in each selected chemical at room temperature.




In Elastomer Products from DuPont there is extensive performance data on DuPont products, Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts, Viton® fluoroelastomer and Vamac® AEM. It provides test data for these products over a wide range of chemicals and in a variety of operating temperatures.
