Immediate damage may occur such as crazing, cracking, permeation losses and mechanical failure. Products with visually noticeable deterioration have diminished integrity and must be replaced immediately with a more suitable product for the application. The following tables identify the most common chemicals and is not intended to be all-inclusive. Exposure to compounds identified as "Not Acceptable" will void all warranties associated with the product. Polycarbonate components should not be used in areas where these chemicals are used and where these chemicals become mists or airborne vapors. Ensure that chemical interactions are considered when selecting fixtures. For additional information please consult an authorized factory representative.
