Thumbs up Chemical Resistance Chart

In my search for a material resistant to battery acid (sulfuric???) for my battery boxes, I discovered this chart.

Perhaps it may be helpful to someone ... that is if no one posted it decades ago!

Chemical Resistance Chart

Thanks for the excellent charts, William.

Chemical compatibility is one (of many) areas where I like to confirm information with several different sources.

Here’s another Chemical Resistance data-base, which allows you to select specific Materials & Chemicals:
Cole-Parmer: Chemical Resistance Database

ie: Sulfuric Acid (10 - 75%) ➥ Cole-Parmer: Compatibility Results

Excellent GM ... thanks for this.

Now I must find something that will work easily.

Based on my earlier posts and the photos, any suggestions for a "more easier to implement than hard to" solution???

Looks like epoxy wins again. You can always use the 'add carbon powder' trick, too. Build the battery box out of plywood confirm the dimensions, coat each piece on all six sides (this is for rot in general), assemble, fillet, install.

Oh, and enjoy a job well done.
