|Chemical Compatibility of Filter Components (EMD)|
Mitex™ PTFE Membrane is unaffected by almost all liquids, including organic solvents, concentrated acids and bases, propellants, and cryogenic fluids. Mitex™ membrane is unbacked, yet is easy to handle, combining the convenience of a backed membrane with the versatility of a pure PTFE membrane. Mitex™ membrane is hydrophobic.
