LOW DENSITY HIGH DENSITY UHMW
* The figures for nylon are for types 6 and 6/6. Types 11 and 12 are generally more resistant.TEFLON — Although our chart shows some chemicals not tested with Teflon, most can be regarded as having no significant effect on Teflon. Teflon resins are inert to most chemical reactants. The exceptions are Molten Alkali Metals, Elemental Fluorine, and Fluorine Percursors such as Oxygen Difluoride and Chlorine Trifluoride.

POLYPROPYLENE — It should be noted that contact between Polypropylene and Copper or Copper salts my result in a “Poisoning” of the Polypropylene. This poisoning occurs when copper ions attach themselves to the Polypropylene, and may cause cracking of the Polypropylene.
