Products should be suitable for prolonged or repeated contact with these substances, under the conditions specified.



These substances may adversely affect the polyethylene.ENPAC products may be suitable for intermittent contact, however, some deterioration in properties may occur. The use should perform qualification tests before or during usage of the container.


These substances aggressively attack polyethylene or have vapor pressures incompatible with closed containers. Do not use polyethylene containers in these applications.
