Graphite, aluminosilicates, and pure silica are notable among inorganic nonmetallic corrosion-resistant materials. Quartz glass, in particular, is resistant in many mediums and is widely used in the production of chemical glassware. Various natural materials, such as andesite and basalt rock, are used for lining the metal bodies of equipment in the production of inorganic acids. Many organic materials, such as polyfluoroethylene resin (Teflon), polyethylene, and polystyrene, are resistant in many aqueous mediums, although they all may be used at temperatures not higher than 100°–200°C.
