Using ozone safe materials is critical when working with ozone. Materials like nylon will melt in a matter of days when it encounters high concentrations of ozone. Inexpensive Ozone Safe Kynar is the material of choice for many ozone applications.

  • Ozone safe plastics are used extensively in the food processing industry, water purification, and medical industries. Ozone has many industrial uses.  It is an extremely effective disinfectant and deodorizer.
  • Ozone is also used to kill bacteria and mold spores. Ozone can be applied in a dissolved state and introduced into water or as a gas (Disinfection with Gaseous Ozonation).
  • Ozone is also highly corrosive and is considered an air pollution hazard.  Although many different types of plastics have properties which make them suitable for use in an ozone environment many other plastics are highly vulnerable to degradation when exposed to ozone. The plastics that are ozone safe are used in ozone generating equipment in several industries and have replaced many more expensive materials such as metal components and fasteners.

Ozone Solutions put together a list of the eight best ozone safe plastics to help guide you in your material choice.  Chemical resistance ratings for plastic run from A for excellent to D for poor.
