Polar solvents can be used as additives to lower resistance, but addition of nonpolar solvents usually is not effective in raising resistance.

New fluorosilicone compounds and copolymers are being developed with improved resistance to the traditional materials, such as fuels, nonpolar solvents and hydraulic fluids, and with reduced swelling in materials such as ketones and esters.
Thermodynamic interactions of poly[2-(p- chlorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolane-4-yl] methyl acrylate- co-styrene (PCKPhDMA-co-St) and poly[2-(p- chlorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolane-4-yl] methyl acrylate- co-acrylonitrile (PCKPhDMA-co-AN) with alcohols as polar and alkenes as nonpolar solvents were investigated between 50 to 180 C degrees by IGC.
Resistance of liquid coatings can be lowered by addition of polar solvents, but adding nonpolar solvents only raises resistance slightly if at all.
