Typical Chemical Properties

Chemical Resistance: Storm-Busters® 16 is resistant to acids, alkalis, salt solutions, solvents, alcohol, water, oil, fat and detergent at room temperature.  Storm-Busters® 16 is not resistant to aromatic or chlorinated hydrocarbons such as benzene at elevated temperatures and strong oxidizing agents.

pH value: Storm-Busters® 16 is inert and hydrophobic. Therefore, Storm-Busters®16 generally does not affect the pH factor when it is in contact with an aqueous solution.
