General chemical resistance
General chemical resistance of finishing materials has been determined by placing reagents in contact with the surface of the product for 16 hours and observing the change. The results of the tests of the various reagents are categorized into two steps listed below. However, as chemical resistance is closely related to both the type of reagent and the duration of contact, we recommend testing samples before exposing the surface to chemicals.
Reagents listed below can be removed with a soft, wet cloth and neutral detergents, and do not affect the surface.
Acetic acid (10%), acetone, ammonia, ammonium hydroxide (5, 28%), amyl acetate, amyl alcohol, ballpoint pen, benzene, bleach, blood, body conditioner, carbon disulfide, carbon tetrachloride, citric acid, xylene, uric acid, calcium thiocyanate, cigarette (nicotine, tar), coffee, edible oil, cottonseed oil, copper ammonia, dishwasher detergents, ethanol, pencil lead, ethyl acetate, ether, formaldehyde, gasoline, grape juice, marker pen, lipstick, nail polish , hexane, hair dye, kitchen detergent, hydrochloric acid (20, 30, 37%), hydrogen peroxide, iodine, ketchup, lemon juice, methanol, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl orange (1%), methyl red, mustard sauce, naphthalene , olive oil, perchloric acid, shoe polish, sodium sulfite, soy sauce, green tea, toluene, urea (6%), grape vinegar, wine, zinc chloride, watercolor, tomato juice, sulfuric acid (25,33, 60%), sugar, sodium hydroxide (5, 10, 25, 40%)
Reagents listed below require sanding for complete removal. Take precautions to avoid contact of these reagents often or for too long a time.
Acetic acid (90, 98%), acid pipe detergent, chlorobenzene, chloroform (100%), cresol, nitric acid (25, 30, 70%), ethyl acetate, phenol (40, 85%), hydrofluoric acid (48% ), dioxane, phosphoric acid (75, 90%), sulfuric acid (77, 96%), trichloroacetic acid, glacial acetic acid, furfural, methylene chloride products (paint remover, brush cleaner, metal scavenger)
