E – 30 days of constant exposure with no damage. Plastic may even tolerate chemical for years.

G – Little or no damage after 30 days of constant exposure to the reagent.

F – Some effect after 7 days of constant exposure to the reagent. Solvents may cause softening, and swelling.

N – Not recommended for continuous use. Immediate damage may occur such as severe crazing, cracking, or permeation losses.
