Fluid Compatibility Tables

The recommendations shown in this table are based on data supplied by Monroe Seals’s polymer manufacturers and comparison made with similar materials. These are general guidelines, and users must conduct functional tests to determine the suitability of any compound for a particular application. To aid in your selection, materials are ranked in order of increasing cost, starting with Nitriles and ending with Aflas

R = recommended
M = marginal
U = unsatisfactory
X = insufficient data
(1) = Fluid
(2) = Nitrile
(3) = SBR
(4) = EPDM
(5) = Neoprene
(6) = Polyacrylate
(7) = Urethane
(8) = Silicone
(9) = Fluoroelastomer
(10) = Fluorosilicone
(11) = Aflas
