3) A thorough examination should be carried out by a competent person with intervals not exceeding twelve months

Selective resistance to chemical agents

1) Polyester (PES) resists to all mineral acids excepts alkali
2) Polyamide (PA)resists to alkali effects but fear mineral acids
3) Polypropilene (PP)lightly fears mineral acids and alkals but it can be damaged in applications where high resistance to chemical agents is required.
Defected slings must be immediatedly discarded and examined by a competent person.
