Chemical Resistance Guide

(Based on 12 month immersion test)


The following is a partial list of chemicals which are con­sidered corrosive to many materials but are easily handled by properly installed HORTONCRETE.

However, because performance may be affected by varying combinations, concentrations and temperatures, where there is any question of suitability, prior testing of HORTONCRETE is recommended.
