Chemical Resistance Guide

The resistance levels reflected in this chart are based on moderate exposure, not long-term immersion in any of the listed fluids. If your application is more rigorous, please request a sample to test against the chemicals in question. For best results, use this chart as a guide and schedule regular cleaning for your mats.
