Suitable Material of Construction



2002

What is the best material of construction for process equipment where Trifluoro acetic acid is used for reactions? What is the erosion rate of Glass in mm/year ? What is the erosion rate of SS 316L in mm/year?

1.2 mm/y on 304/316 stainless. I would guess that that it is not compatible with glass considering the presence of fluoride.
