DuPont™ Kalrez® 0090 perfluoroelastomer parts deliver durable, reliable sealing solutions for applications requiring excellent rapid gas decompression (RGD) properties as well as high hardness and high modulus properties. Some application areas include downhole equipment such as drilling and completion tools as well as industrial equipment including pumps and valves. Kalrez® 0090 has been certified by two independent labs (see Table 2) to meet rigorous requirements for resistance to RGD. In addition to demonstrated RGD resistance, DuPont™ Kalrez® 0090 seals have other chemical and temperature properties that provide superior performance.
• Chemical resistance: Kalrez® parts withstand attack by more than 1800 chemical substances. Kalrez® 0090 can be resistant to sour multi-phase fluids containing H2S as shown by the external NORSOK M-710 Rev 2 Sour Fluid ageing resistance certification provided by MERL (UK).
• Broad temperature capability: Kalrez® 0090 retains high levels of resilience up to temperatures as high as 250 °C (482 °F) and down to –21 °C (–5.8 °F). Under pressurized sealing conditions, Kalrez® 0900 has demonstrated low temperature performance down to –40 °C (–40 °F) in customer laboratory tests*.
