DuPont™ Kalrez® offers more stability, more resistance, more effective sealing. Period.
Engineered for your mission-critical applications.
While DuPont didn’t invent O-rings or specialty sealants, it has a 40-year track record of innovation and development, creating sealants that stand up to the most challenging operating environments.
Aside from its cleanliness and purity, Kalrez® polymer chains are engineered to be one of the most inert polymer structures available, standing up to more than 1,800 different chemicals, while offering high temperature stability.
Kalrez® offers a consistent cure rate, precise traceability and one of the longest, most highly predictable lifespans in the industry.
From aerospace, transportation and chemical processing to chip manufacturing and oil and gas applications, DuPont™ Kalrez® is engineered to provide more stability, more resistance and more effective sealing. Period..
Sealing Collaboration Pays Dividends in Chamber Cleaning
Chamber cleaning with NF3 / O2 plasma increased maintenance at Spansion due to seal erosion. Kalrez® 9100 parts improved productivity and reduced cost-of-ownership. Kalrez® 9100 parts were successfully qualified in both thin films and dry etch tools.
- Pharmaceutical Seals for CIP and SIP
O-rings in Pressurized Water Reactor
Due to the combination of extreme temperature, pressure and chemical environments, Kalrez® 0090 was used in a series of mechanical seals employed in the operation of boiler feed pumps for pressurized water reactors.
O-rings for Gas Sweetening Valves
Kalrez® 7090 perfluoroelastomer parts offer an excellent combination of chemical, Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) resistance , and high temperature resistance for O-ring applications in gas sweetening valves that handle glycol-based solvents.
Kalrez® O-rings for Hydrogen Sulfide Removal
Amine units for hydrogen sulfide removal (H2S) at high temperatures use elastomers like Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6380 FFKM parts for resistance to amines. 6380 helps extend MTBR of valves and pumps in amine service.
Process Instrument Gaskets
By switching from gasket seals of PTFE to custom gaskets of DuPont™ Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts in the sensor head of a process instrument refractometer used by the food, pulp and paper and chemical industries, process instrument manufacturer.
