Incompatibility / Reactive interactions
Many materials that are not considered ?reactive materials? can nevertheless react dangerously with other, incompatible materials. The other material may be there intentionally (addition of the right material, but in the wrong amount) or by accident (such as contaminants like rust or lubricants). Conditions under which the materials are used (pressure, temperature, humidity, concentration, etc.) can also change the reactive behaviour dramatically.
