Material Ratings and Definitions


INTRODUCTION
This Chemical Resistance Guide has been compiled to assist the piping system designer in selecting chemical-resistant materials. The information given is intended as a guide only. Many conditions can affect the material choices. Careful consideration must be given to temperature, pressure and chemical concentrations before a nal material can be selected. The physical characteristics of thermoplastics and elastomers are more sensitive to temperature than metals. For this reason, a rating chart has been developed for each. mercial sanitary systems. The residential DWV system can be exposed in service to a wide temperature span. ABS-DWV has proven satisfactory for use from -40F to 180F. These temperature variations can occur due to ambient temperature or the discharge of hot liquids into the system. ABS-DWV is very resistant to a wide variety of materials ranging from sewage to commercial household chemical formulations. ABS-DWV is joined by solvent cementing or threading and can easily be connected to steel, copper, or cast iron through the use of transition ttings. CPVC Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride Class 23447 conforming to ASTM D1784, has physical properties at 73F similar to those of PVC, and its chemical resistance is similar to or generally better than that of PVC. CPVC, with a design stress of 2000 psi and maximum service temperature of 210F, has proven to be an excellent material for hot corrosive liquids, hot or cold water distribution, and similar applications above the temperature range of PVC. CPVC is joined by solvent cementing, threading or anging. PP (Polypropylene) Polypropylene is a polyolen, which is lightweight and generally high in chemical resistance. Although polypropylene is slightly lower in physical properties compared to PVC, it is chemically resistant to organic solvents as well as acids and alkalies. Generally, polypropylene should not be used in contact with strong oxidizing acids, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and aromatics. With a design stress of 1000 psi at 73 F, polypropylene has gained wide acceptance where its resistance to sulfur-bearing compounds is particularly useful in salt water disposal lines, crude oil piping, and low pressure gas gathering systems. Polypropylene has also proved to be an excellent material for laboratory and industrial drainage where mixtures of acids, bases, and solvents are involved. Polypropylene is joined by the heat fusion process, threading or anging. At 180F, or when threaded, PP should be used for drainage only at a pressure not exceeding 20 psi. PVC Polyvinyl Chloride Class 12454 conforming to ASTM D1784. PVC is the most frequently specied of all thermoplastic materials. It has been used successfully for over 40 years in such areas as chemical processing, industrial plating, chilled water distribution, deionized water lines, chemical drainage, and irrigation systems. PVC is characterized by high physical properties and resistance to corrosion and chemical attack by acids, alkalies, salt solutions, and many other chemicals. It is attacked, however, by polar solvents such as ketones, some chlorinated hydrocarbons and aromatics. The maximum service temperature of PVC is 140F. With a design stress of 2000 psi, PVC has the highest long-term hydrostatic strength at 73F of any of the major thermoplastics being used for piping systems. PVC is joined by solvent cementing, threading, or anging. PVDF Polyvinylidene Fluoride is a strong, tough and abrasionresistant uorocarbon material. It resists distortion and retains most of its strength to 280F. It is chemically resistant to most acids, bases, and organic solvents and is ideally suited for handling wet or dry chlorine, bromine and other halogens. No other

MATERIAL RATINGS FOR METALS


A B C Blank = Recommended, resistant under normal conditions = Conditional, consult factory = Not recommended = No data available

Temperature maximums for thermoplastics, elastomers and metals should always fall within published temp/pressure ratings for individual valves. THERMOPLASTICS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR COMPRESSED AIR OR GAS SERVICE.* This guide considers the resistance of the total valve assembly as well as the resistance of individual trim and tting materials. The rating assigned to the valve body plus trim combinations is always that of the least resistant part. In the cases where the valve body is the least resistant, there may be conditions under which the rate of corrosion is slow enough and the mass of the body large enough to be usable for a period of time. Such use should always be determined by test before installation of the component in a piping system. In the selection of a buttery valve for use with a particular chemical, the liner, disc, and stem must be resistant. All three materials should carry a rating of A. The body of a properly functioning buttery valve is isolated from the chemicals being handled and need not carry the same rating.

Material Definitions
solid thermoplastic piping components can approach the combination of strength, chemical resistance and working temperatures of PVDF. PVDF is joined by the heat fusion process, threading or anging. EPDM EPDM is a terpolymer elastomer made from ethylenepropylene diene monomer. EPDM has good abrasion and tear resistance and offers excellent chemical resistance to a variety of acids and alkalines. It is susceptible to attack by oils and is not recommended for applications involving petroleum oils, strong acids, or strong alkalines. It has good ozone resistance. It is fairly good with ketones and alcohols and has an excellent temperature range from -20F to 250F. POLYCHLOROPRENE (CR) Polychloroprenes were one of the rst synthetic rubbers developed. Polychloroprene is an allpurpose polymer with many desirable characteristics and features high resiliency with low compression set, ame resistance, and is animal and vegetable oil resistant. Polychloroprene is principally recommended for food and beverage service. Generally, polychloroprene is not affected by moderate chemicals, fats, greases, and many oils and solvents. Polychloroprene is attacked by strong oxidizing acids, most chlorinated solvents, esters, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons, and hydraulic uids. Polychloroprene has a moderate temperature range of -20F to 160F. NITRILE (NBR) BUNA-N is a general purpose oil-resistant polymer known as nitrile rubber. Nitrile is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile and has a moderate temperature range of 20F to 180F. Nitrile has good solvent, oil, water, and hydraulic uid resistance. It displays good compression set, abrasion resistance and tensile strength. Nitrile should not be used in highly polar solvents such as acetone and methyl ethyl ketone, nor should it be used in chlorinated hydrocarbons, ozone or nitro hydrocarbons. FLUOROCARBON (FKM) Fluorocarbon elastomers are inherently compatible with a broad spectrum of chemicals. Because of this extensive chemical compatibility, which spans considerable concentration and temperature ranges, uorocarbon elastomers have gained wide acceptance as a material of construction for buttery valve o-rings and seats. Fluorocarbon elastomers can be used in most applications involving mineral acids, salt solutions, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and petroleum oils. They are particularly good in hydrocarbon service. Fluorocarbon elastomers have one of the broadest temperature ranges of any of the elastomers, -20F to 300F; however, they are not suited for steam service. PTFE Polytetrauoroethylene has outstanding resistance to chemical attack by most chemicals and solvents. PTFE has a temperature rating of -20F to 400F in valve applications. PTFE, a self-lubricating compound, is used as a seat material in ball valves. GRAPHITE Graphite is the packing and seal material of choice for most re-rated products, primarily because of its high temperature rating of approximately 2000F. Graphite has excellent chemical resistance, can retain compressibility at all temperatures and has a low coefcient of friction. Graphite is not recommended for use in strong oxidizing atmospheres.

METALS USED IN VALVES & FITTINGS


COPPER Among the most important properties of wrot copper materials are their thermal and electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and ductility. Wrot copper performs well in high temperature applications and is easily joined by soldering or brazing. Wrot copper is exclusively used for ttings. BRONZE One of the rst alloys developed in the bronze age is generally accepted as the industry standard for pressure-rated bronze valves and ttings. Bronze has a higher strength than pure copper, is easily cast, has improved machinability, and is very easily joined by soldering or brazing. Bronze is very resistant to pitting corrosion, with general resistance to most chemicals less than that of pure copper. SILICONE BRONZE Silicone bronze has the ductility of copper but much more strength. The corrosion resistance of silicon bronze is equal to or greater than that of copper. Commonly used as stem material in pressure-rated valves, silicon bronze has greater resistance to stress corrosion cracking than common brasses. ALUMINUM BRONZE The most widely accepted disc material used in buttery valves, aluminum bronze is heat treatable and has the strength of steel. Formation of an aluminum oxide layer on exposed surfaces makes this metal very corrosion resistant. Not recommended for high pH wet systems. BRASS Generally, brass has good corrosion resistance. Susceptible to de-zincication in specic applications; excellent machinability. Primary uses for wrot brass are for ball valve stems and balls, and iron valve stems. A forging grade of brass is used in ball valve bodies and end pieces. GRAY IRON An alloy of iron, carbon and silicon, gray iron is easily cast, and has good pressure tightness in the as-cast condition. Gray iron has excellent dampening properties and is easily machined. It is standard material for bodies and bonnets of Class 125 and 250 iron body valves. Gray iron has corrosion resistance that is better than steel in certain environments. DUCTILE IRON Ductile iron has composition similar to gray iron. Special treatment modies metallurgical structure, which yields higher mechanical properties; some grades are heat-treated to improve ductility. Ductile iron has the strength properties of steel using similar casting techniques to that of gray iron. CARBON STEEL Carbon steel has very good mechanical properties and is resistant to stress corrosion and suldes. Carbon steel has high and low temperature strength, is very tough and has excellent fatigue strength. Mainly used in gate, globe, and check valves for applications up to 850F, and in one-, two-, and three-piece ball valves.

Material Definitions and Standards


3% NICKEL IRON 3% Nickel iron has improved corrosion resistance over gray and ductile iron. Higher temperature corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Very resistant to oxidizing atmospheres. NICKEL-PLATED DUCTILE IRON Nickel coatings have received wide acceptance for use in chemical processing. These coatings have very high tensile strength, 50 to 225 ksi. To some extent, the hardness of a material is indicative of its resistance to abrasion and wear characteristics. Nickel plating is widely specied as a disc coating for buttery valves. 400 SERIES STAINLESS STEEL An alloy of iron, carbon, and chromium, 400 series stainless steel is normally magnetic due to its martensitic structure and iron content. It is resistant to high temperature oxidation and has improved physical and mechanical properties over carbon steel. Most 400 series stainless steels are heat-treatable. The most common applications in valves are for stem material in buttery valves and backseat bushings and wedges in cast steel valves. 316 STAINLESS STEEL An alloy of iron, carbon, nickel, and chromium, 316 stainless steel is nonmagnetic with more ductility than 400SS. Austinetic in structure, 316 stainless steel has very good corrosion resistance to a wide range of environments, is not susceptible to stress corrosion cracking and is not affected by heat treatment. Most common uses in valves are stem, body and ball materials. 630 STAINLESS STEEL 630 stainless steel is a martensitic precipitation/age hardening stainless steel, offering high strength and hardness. 630 SS withstands corrosive attack better than any of the 400 series stainless steels, and in most conditions its corrosion resistance closely approaches that of 300 series stainless steel. 630 SS is primarily used as a stem material for buttery and ball valves.
