Material selection is an important step in the overmold material compatibility chart. Your decision isn’t just about which materials will result in the maximum adhesion, but also how those materials will perform in the field. Applications involving chemical exposure require extra care and attention, as not all overmolding materials offer the same degree of chemical resistance. Below is a basic comparison chart to help you understand how some of the most popular plastic resins stand up to different basic chemical groups.
