1 = Stable no visible change in the sealer after one week‘s incubation
3 = Moderately stable after one week, optical and physical changes in the sealer (clouding tears on removal)
4 = Unstable adhesive and foil are dissolved, wells not leak-tight
This table can only be used as an orientation aid for the suitability of the respective sealers, since their behaviour against chemicals depends on the respective application. Tests under practical conditions are absolutely essential in many cases.
