Book with chemical resistance data for polymers

Book with chemical resistance data for polymers

Does anyone know of a credible book that has chemical resistance data for polymers? Similar to ASM Handbook of Corrosion Data, but for polymers.

RE: Book with chemical resistance data for polymers

If you've got one, I'm anxious to hear about it!

There are extensive resources for individual polymers provided by the manufacturers thereof, but collecting these in one location and keeping it all up to date would be difficult.

Elastomers are even worse: there are grade differences between manufacturers of materials of the same general class of polymers (i.e. FKM (viton) , FFKM (kalrez) that in some cases make them behave, from a chemical resistance perspective, as if they were entirely different materials. Testing is often the only way to get to the bottom of what you really need to know.
