What is the material resistance of LDPE/PP ?

in FAQs
Chemicals
Chemicals

The material resistance of LDPE and PP is not as high as that of HDPE due to the higher density. LDPE is resistant to water, diluted acids, alkalis, solutions of inorganic substances, solvents, alcohols, aliphatic hydrocarbons, petrol.
LDPE is not resistant to strong acids and oxidizing agents, oxidizing acids, esters, ketones and aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons.

Below is an overview of LDPE and PP resistance to different materials. All information is non-binding.
