ACRYLITE® Soundstop Chemical Resistance
The table below gives an indication of the chemical resistance of ACRYLITE® Soundstop noise barrier panels and ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS CC noise barrier panels. Plastic materials can be attacked by chemicals in several ways. The methods of fabrication and/or conditions of exposure of ACRYLITE® Soundstop, as well as the manner in which the chemicals are applied, can influence the final results even for “R” coded chemicals. Some of these factors include:
Fabrication – stress generated while sawing, sanding, machining, drilling, and/or forming.
Exposure – length of exposure, stresses induced during the life of the product due to various loads, changes in temperatures, etc.
Application of Chemicals – by contact, rubbing, wiping, spraying, etc.
The table should be used as only a general guide and, in case of doubt, it should be supplemented by tests made under actual working conditions. The codes used to describe chemical resistance are:
R = Resistant
ACRYLITE® Soundstop noise barrier panels withstand this substance for long periods and at temperatures up to 120°F (49°C).
LR = Limited Resistance
ACRYLITE® Soundstop noise barrier panels resist the action of this substance for short periods at room temperatures. The resistance for a particular application must be determined.
N = Not Resistant
ACRYLITE® Soundstop noise barrier panels are not resistant to this substance. It is swelled, attacked, dissolved or damaged in some manner.
