    I am planning on using clear, type 1 PVC sheet to make covers for items that have been exposed to aqueous Bromine.
    Will this work? I will also need a solvent bonder for making the enclosures.

      Hi James,
      The Clear PVC materials are not recommended with aqueous Bromine, or Bromine in general.
      We do not have a clear material that will handle the Bromine.
      You will need to go to a high chemical resistant material such as PVDF (Kynar) or similar Performance Plastic.
      Please let us know if we can help you further.
