Chemical Compatibility for Hose - RYCO Hydraulics

Chemical Compatibility for Hose

The following Chemical Compatibility Chart is for guidance only. 
In all cases, testing is advised to determine the application suitability. 
Material for Couplings and Adaptors must also be compatible – refer to RYCO Hydraulics Technical Department. 
Specified resistance applies only at room temperature unless otherwise stated, and within the listed concentration.
