DuPont Anti-Corrosion Seminar a Success at Achema 2006

DuPont™ Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer

DuPont recently hosted a seminar entitled "Materials Technology - Managing Corrosion with DuPont™ Teflon®" during Achema 2006, the world's largest chemical expo held in Frankfurt, Germany. The seminar highlighted DuPont applications across the process industry, including oil and gas, food, and pharmaceuticals, and introduced the complete range of Teflon® products available for high-purity chemical manufacturing. DuPont™ Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts from DuPont Performance Elastomers, commonly used for seals in harsh chemical environments, also were highlighted.

A specific highlight of the DuPont exhibit was a range of anti-static, corrosion-resistant pumps made by French company Someflu. The majority of the pump's components use DuPont™ Teflon® PFA C-980, thanks to the material's excellent conductivity, which enables the pumps to comply with the ATEX European Directive (94/9/EC), concerning the use of equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres.
