USES AND APPLICATIONS
Vespel® parts used for aircraft engine parts are lighter than metal, high-heat resistant, low-wearing and self-lubricating to improve engine efficiency and durability.
Vespel® wear rings used in centrifugal pumps to replace metal parts for improved reliability and performance.
DuPont™ Kalrez® chemical processing seals are a proven sealing option for high-temperature (327°C), aggressive-chemical processing applications.
DuPont™ Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts and DuPont™ Vespel® parts and shapes in high pressure seal and valve applications help to reduce fugitive emissions, improve control in processing and provide excellent durability and resistance against chemicals and extreme temperatures.
Kalrez® parts used for aircraft engine seals are designed with properties to work in extreme temperatures and withstand aggressive aerospace fluids, including jet fuels and lubricating oils.
Life Science areas such as pharmaceutical, medical packaging and the food and beverage industries require the highest standards of safety, temperature and chemical resistance in production. To achieve this they need high performance seals that can ensure efficiency and cleanliness.
Kalrez® semiconductor processing seals are a field-proven choice for wafer-fabricating operations, including deposition, etch, ash/strip, thermal and wet-chemical processes.
DuPont™ Vespel® parts have a unique combination of properties that can replace metal, PEEK or ceramic parts in material handling equipment with high temperatures, high wear or no lubrication.
In photovoltaic manufacturing, Kalrez® parts are a cost-effective upgrade over standard elastomers for bulk crystalline silicon and thin-film photovoltaic processes.
