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.
Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts include a range of high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) seals for oil and gas industry downhole uses, with resistance to rapid gas decompression, heat and chemicals.
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.
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.
