the first expansion of its Kalrez® Spectrum™ product
line designed specifically for the Chemical Processing Industry,
DuPont Dow Elastomers unveils its most recent high-performance
product, Kalrez® Spectrum™ 7075, at the Pump Symposium
in Houston, Texas, on March 17. The Spectrum™ family of
products was originally launched in 1999 with the introduction
of Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6375. Now, DuPont Dow Elastomers
announces the commercial availability of Kalrez® Spectrum™
as a high-performance offering for critical sealing components,
Kalrez® Spectrum™ 7075 perfluoroelastomer parts build
on the exceptional performance of Kalrez® 4079, the industry
standard for severe sealing applications. Customers will benefit
from longer seal life and increased mean time between repairs
(MTBR) due to the benefits of 7075 performance including:
Very low compression set at 204°C for 70 hours (15%)
Enhanced sealing force retention
Higher thermal resistance, up to 326°C (620°F)
addition, 7075 offers broader chemical resistance and better cool
down set recovery than Kalrez® 4079, and provides a smoother,
glossier finish than other Kalrez® products.
customers in the chemical and hydrocarbon processing industries
have experienced exceptional seal performance in preliminary product
testing, especially in demanding applications, like mechanical
seals," said Don Pittenger, Chemical Process Industry Marketing
Manager, DuPont Dow Elastomers. "We believe 7075 is an important
addition to the family of Kalrez® products, which have become
the industry standard for safe, reliable service."
Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts and Viton® fluoroelastomers
from DuPont Dow will exhibit at the Pump Symposium at Booth 546.
Technical experts will be available to discuss their latest products
as well as answer questions about sealing issues.
