Thu, 03/13/2008 - 12:21pm
Kalrez Spectrum 6380, the latest addition to the Kalrez Spectrum family of perfluoroelastomer parts, is specifically developed to extend service lifetime in chemical and hydrocarbon processes involving hot, aggressive amines, strong acids, and oxidizing media. Kalrez Spectrum 6380 perfluoroelastomer parts promise excellent overall chemical resistance and mechanical properties for static and dynamic sealing applications in harsh chemical plant processes at temperatures up to 225°C. In laboratory tests, they exhibited very low swell after 672 hours exposure to ethylene diamine, ethanolamine, and ammonium hydroxide at high temperatures, compared with alternative perfluoroelastomer parts commonly specified for such environments.
