Westex ShieldCXP™

Corrosive Chemical Resistance

Westex ShieldCXP™ is resistant to corrosive and oxidizing solvent combinations.


One particularly dramatic example is piranha solution• 3:1 mixture of 98% sulfuric acid: 30% hydrogen peroxide
• Extremely oxidizing mixture known to consume organic matter and presents a significant hazard
• Despite its hazardous nature, it is a common mixture used in both academic and industrial laboratories

 
Test created to quantify the resistance against the penetration of piranha solution

• A fabric swatch was spread across the lid of a beaker to create a concave surface
• A freshly prepared piranha mixture was poured onto the fabric surface
• Time of penetration through the fabric was recorded in seconds
