Kalrez Industry Applications
For over 25 years, Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts have been providing the ultimate in sealing performance in the harshest processing environments. Some of the industries and applications in which Kalrez® parts provide superior performance include
Chemical Processing – In pumps, valves, reactors, flange joints and other equipment, Kalrez® parts—whether O-rings, custom shapes or valve stem packing systems—are proving their value year in and year out as the best choice for long-term, reliable service.
Semiconductor – The success of Kalrez® has been field-proven in the manufacture of semiconductors, where processing steps can involve extremes of both thermal and chemical exposure.

Food and Pharmaceuticals – Food and Pharmaceutical applications require the ultimate in cleanliness and Kalrez® parts provide that along with excellent sealing performance in a wide range of aggressive media over a broad range of temperatures. The introduction of FDA-compliant Kalrez® compounds offers a new standard of sealing solutions with full traceability, low contamination from extractables and excellent seal life.
Aerospace – High-performance Kalrez® parts provide reliable and long-lasting sealing performance for the military, commercial and general aviation industry. They are used as oil seals in gas turbine engines and air delivery systems.
Oil and Gas – Kalrez® parts stand up to severe down-hole conditions—from high pressures and temperatures, to aggressive sour gas and corrosive fluids.
Photovoltaic – Kalrez® seals for photovoltaic cell manufacturing processes.
As the demand for photovoltaic (PV) systems continue to rise, manufacturers must find ways to increase uptime and improve output. Unplanned maintenance due to incompatible sealing materials can cause downtime and interfere with production schedules. Selecting the appropriate sealing material can help improve performance and lower cost of ownership in both bulk crystalline silicon and thin film photovoltaic processes that use aggressive “wet” chemistries, high temperatures or reactive plasma/gas. Kalrez® parts retain their elastomeric properties at temperatures as high as 325°C, and resist over 1800 chemicals including alkalis, acids, solvents, O2 and fluorine-based plasma.
