Chemical resistance

chemical resistance of benefil foam.

The list shown below, although not exhaustive, contains chemicals likely to come into contact with Benefil polymer resin during normal use. A ‘good’ rating indicates chemical absorption will have little or no effect on the cell structure of the polymer. A ‘poor’ rating indicates that damage may occur as a result of contamination which may lead to for example, shrinkage of the polymer.
