MFCP Knowledge Base
The susceptibility of different base metals to corrosion while in contact depends upon the difference between the contact potentials or the electromotive voltages of the metals involved. Use our Galvanic Corrosion Scale to find the metal combination with the least potential.
Tube Fitting Material Compatibility
As a general rule, tube and fitting materials should be the same. If different materials must be considered, use this chart as a general guide for finding the most compatible products.
Chemical Compatibility: Rubber Hose
This Chart is a reference for Parker rubber hose compatibility with various fluid media.
Chemical Compatibility: Thermoplastic Hose
This Chart is a reference for Parker Parflex hose compatibility with various fluid media.
Chemical Compatibility: Plastic Tubing
These tables and information cover the chemical compatibility of Parker Parflex plastic tubing listed in Parker Catalog 4660.
