Recently we have received a enquiry for internal rubber lining for a tank which contains sulphuric acid (98% concentration). Can you suggest which will be suitable material (Rubber) for the above?

UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) Polyethylene is what most containers for sulfuric acid as well as other strong chemicals are made of. It would have to be formed in one piece without joints or weldments which may be impossible for some applications. Teflon would also be suitable but more expensive.Guillermo Marrufo
