Release from DuPont (formerly named DuPont Performance Elastomers when this article was written)
chemical process industry (CPI) sealing performance will be the
keynote of DuPont Performance Elastomers ACHEMA 2006 line-up of
Viton® fluoroelastomers (FKM) and Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer
(FFKM) parts — combining the latest advances in chemical,
temperature and pressure resistance in virtually all process media,
with demonstrated cost savings over process equipment lifetime.
The company will showcase FDA compliant types of Viton® GF-600S,
Viton® Extreme™ ETP-600S, industry standard Viton®
A-401C fluoroelastomers for critical process sealing, and Kalrez®
Spectrum™ 6375 and 7075 for the most aggressive CPI environments.

of DuPont Performance Elastomers Viton® GF-600S, Viton®
Extreme™ ETP-600S and Viton® A-401C fluoroelastomers,
featured at ACHEMA, covering many of the industry’s
most challenging chemical process sealing needs.
FDA compliant types of Viton® GF-600S and
Viton® Extreme™ ETP-600S fluoroelastomers, made with
Advanced Polymer Architecture, have been developed specially for
critical pharmaceutical, food and beverage process sealing where
repeat use and food contact compliance is required. Viton®
A-401C is designed to set a new industry standard by offering
excellent resistance to compression set and to aliphatic and aromatic
hydrocarbons. These recent developments, as with all Viton®
types, are available through the company's "Genuine Viton®"
program which provides assurance that the sealing products are
made of 100 percent Viton®.
high-end FFKM sealing, DuPont Performance Elastomers will highlight
Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6375 — enabling users to economise
around one instead of two or three sealing compounds in inventory,
and Kalrez® Spectrum™ 7075 — providing extended
seal life, sealing force retention and thermal resistance up to
327°C in the most aggressive CPI environments. The company
will also demonstrate the affordability of Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer
seals via industry data showing how savings of up to 98 percent
in total system running costs are possible by switching to Kalrez®.

partnership with DuPont at 13.30 on 17 May, 2006, in room Fantasie
2, Frankfurt Congress Centre. Norbert Bothe, applications consultant
for Kalrez®, will update chemical process engineers on cost-effective
seal selections for the most difficult chemical environments,
including custom parts designed by state-of-the-art FEA methods
to meet DIN 11864 specifications, in his paper "Kalrez®
