Handy reference

I don't want to go to deep here. But I had to replace a little tiny gasket in a pump for my kero tank, so I can pressurize it. But finding material that would hold up in the kerosene has been a bit of a problem. I found this site that lists all kinds of chemicals and material compatibility's. On boats we are always dealing with some strange stuff, so this should be helpful.

It's set up for o-ring material. but you can use it for any combination.

Thanks Seacap! It's not important for me at the moment, but it might be in a year or two...

Cole Parmer has a nice compatibility list. Not o-ring specific.

Good one John.
Lets see... rum is compatable with hypalon and beer is compatable with 316 stainless.
Where can we take this???
