CABLE GUARDS CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

CABLE GUARD CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

Due to the various use of Elasco’s products, our cable guards and drop overs may come into contact with various chemicals on a daily basis. Due to our chemical process of manufacturing, our PU products hold up better than most materials when being exposed to other chemicals and have a strong chemical resistance.

The following table reflects the ability of polyurethane (PU) to withstand various, common chemicals.  In general, PU has GOOD to EXCELLENT resistance to most common substances.  For a more specific compound, i.e., jet fuel, please contact us (800) 827-7887.
