How resistant to chemicals are the SIMATIC HMI operator panels and Industrial PCs?
The PDF file lists all the devices whose fronts1) have been tested and whose fronts1) have the same properties as reference devices.
1) Fronts consist of the decor foil, plastic, seal and touch foil (on Touch devices).

1.) Test conditions and type of chemical substances
The chemical substances tested and the test conditions are listed below. The test pieces were coated once with the media.
|Test media and test conditions|
|1||Honing oil: Castrol Honilo 981||50||72|
|2||Super grade motor fuel||20||72|
|6||Hydrochloric acid 10%||20||1)|
|7||Sidolin streak-free cleaning agent with alcohol||20||72|
|8||Caustic soda solution 10%||20||1)|
|13||Brake fluid DOT 4||50||72|
|1)||10 cycles over a total period of 72 hours: spray on, then leave to dry.|
2.) Chemical resistance of fronts
The following chemical substances are to be classed according to the following table.
|1||Honing oil Castrol Honilo 981||No recognizable change.|
|2||Super grade motor fuel||No recognizable change.|
|3||Diesel oil||No recognizable change.|
|4||Rape oil||No recognizable change.|
|5||Linseed oil||No recognizable change.|
|6||Hydrochloric acid 10%||Test piece shows signs of discoloration.|
|7||Sidolin streak-free cleaning agent with alcohol||No recognizable change.|
|8||Caustic soda solution 10%||Test piece shows signs of discoloration.|
|9||Ethyl alcohol||No recognizable change.|
|10||Benzine HAKU||No recognizable change.|
|11||Solvent (alkaline)||No recognizable change.|
|12||Acetone||Test piece shows signs of discoloration.|
|13||Brake fluid DOT 4||No recognizable change.|
|14||H²O² 10%||No recognizable change.|
Adhesives do not have a long-term resistance to aggressive oils, cleaning agents and solutions. In such a case, we recommend using a protective cover for panels. Information about which protective covers are available for panels is given in Entry ID: 12391908.
3.) Single gas test in compliance with DIN EN 60068-2-42
Only the fronts1) were tested, not the complete devices.
1) Fronts consist of decor foil, plastic, seal and touch foil (on Touch devices).
|Test duration||10 days|
|Test result||No recognizable change.|
If you are using a chemical that is not in our list, you have the option of having a test made at your own expense.
