So you are NOT asking what materials are the most resistant to chemicals, you are asking what materials are most resistant to chemicals that are likely to come up a fume hood, and you are not telling us what chemicals are likely to come up your particular fume hood. Do you see how those two questions are not at all the same?

My point is that you are on a science forum and in science, poorly worded and/or incomplete questions often do not get answers that are helpful. A fume hood for painting objects is not likely to be the same as a fume hood used in a chem lab.
