Chemical Compatibility Reference Book?

Chemical Compatibility Reference Book?

Chemical Compatibility Reference Book?

I'd like to get my hands on a decent reference book for chemical compatibility of various materials.

I have a copy of Pressure Vessel Handbook and also a pretty handy compatibility guide from Chesterton seals. In addition I am aware of Colepalmer.com has a decent compatibility database. Ultimately thought these all have holes in them for what ever the particular material is I am looking at and there are occasionally differences in the recommendations.

Is anyone aware of any better reference guides?

RE: Chemical Compatibility Reference Book?

There will always be holes, regardless.

Compass Corrosion Guide II : A Guide to Chemical Resistance of Metals and Engineering Plastics by Kenneth M. Pruett (1983, Hardcover, Revised)

Chemical Resistance Guide for Elastomers III : A Guide to Chemical Resistance of Rubber and Elastomeric Compounds by Kenneth M. Pruett (2005, Hardcover)

Corrosion Data Survey - Metals Section, Sixth Edition (NACE)

Vendors publish their own summaries, as you can see from the list in my chemical compatibility folder:

DECHEMA Corrosion Handbook. The best I know but not cheap.
