Posted on 2018/09/11 | Cliff | Technology

Eclipse Engineering is an authorized distributor for DuPont™ Kalrez®

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.

DuPont™ Kalrez® Perfluoroelastomer Parts are Engineered for Optimum Performance

For over 40 years DuPont has been the leader in supplying a variety of Perfluoroelastomer compounds, which provides reliable, long-term sealing in extreme chemical and thermal environments.

The use of DuPont™ Kalrez® elastomers results in reduced maintenance costs thereby improving productivity and up time of critical manufacturing processes.

DuPont™ Kalrez® has nearly inert chemical resistance allowing it to perform in the harshest environments while having the reliable sealing capability of an O-ring.

The use of DuPont™ Kalrez® creates an increase level of safety and a reduction in fugitive emissions.

Compounds can be manufactured to resist degradation in harsh chemicals thereby improving process purity.

DuPont™ Kalrez® will handle extreme temperatures exceeding standard fluorocarbon materials such as Viton® while maintaining excellent chemical resistance.

Typical applications of DuPont™ Kalrez® would include chemical processing, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals where purity of the product is essential. This same purity goes into wafer processing in the semi-con world to improve sealing reliability in processes that use high heat, with aggressive chemicals and plasma.

All compounds are manufactured to the highest quality standards with full lot traceability and quality assurance under ISO 9001. Some additional characteristics are:

  • Superior chemical resistance to more than 1800 chemicals
  • Service temperature range up to 327°C
  • Maintains sealing force to keep seals tight
  • Low compression set
  • Field proven in electronic processes
  • Long seal life in chemical and hydrocarbon processing
  • FDA and USP compliancy
