Elastomer/material shows little or no effect after exposure to the chemical.
Elastomer/material is unsuitable when exposed to the chemical.
Elastomer/material may be affected after exposure chemical. Swelling and/or a loss of physical properties is possible.
For fluid to remain in liquid state, pressure or temperature may exceed inlet seal specifications.
Elastomer/material is effected after exposure to the chemical. Moderate or severe swelling and loss of physical properties will limit life of the elastomer/material.
A special compound may be required. Contact CAT PUMPS for recommendations.
