T-FIT Application profile 36 -Chemical/Cleaning Agent resistance testing

Chemical/Cleaning Agent resistance testing

Clean room and other aseptic environments are often subject to routine deep cleaning processes with industrial strength chemical agents, disinfectants, and sanitisers. These types of products often cause traditional insulation to break down, particularly open cell materials which wick cleaning agents into the structure of the insulation, causing subsequent failure.

T-FIT® Clean is a closed cell product and will not absorb any moisture or cleaning agent. Moulded from polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) the product is naturally highly chemical resistant. To provide a higher level of confidence to clean room operators, customers, and users/installers of T-FIT Clean, chemical patch testing was conducted across a range of 6 common cleaning agents over a seven-day period of continuous exposure.
