Gumlast™ L8015 has been successfully benchmarked against Chemraz® E38 at Lam Research Corporation. Gumlast™ L8015 100% pure FFKM and is manufactured in the U.S.A. Utilizing the latest cross-linking and reinforcement techniques.
August 31, 2010 – Emeryville, California (September 02, 2010) – NuGeneration Technologies (NuGenTec) announced today that its Gumlast™ L8015 has been successfully benchmarked against Chemraz® E38 at Lam Research Corporation, the global leader in dry etch equipment sector. Gumlast™ L8015 is 100% pure perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) and is manufactured in the U.S.A. Utilizing the latest cross-linking and reinforcement techniques, multiple grades have been formulated to optimize the performance of the molded parts in many different applications. Gumlast™ L8015 is manufactured in state of the art, highly modernized & ISO certified production lines with very high line yield. Adding further value, the company’s Gumlast™ L8015 is priced at or near 50% of most other FFKMs in the market today.
Because of Chemraz® E38 quality reputation in the semiconductor industry, NuGenTec considers this benchmarking status to be noteworthy for a U.S.A. manufactured product with a significantly lower price point. “Chemraz® E38 is a well-known material for its plasma resistance and we are very excited to match its performance with Gumlast™ L8015 when exposed to the harsh deep silicon etch (DSiE) process environment”, said Fred Pourmirzaie, Director of FloDynamix, LLC, a division of NuGenTec.

FloDynamix had its beginning in early 2007 with the aim of providing sealing solutions that substantially reduce the cost of ownership. In Chemical & Hydrocarbon Processing, unplanned leaks and spillage due to component failures result in loss of production and cause environmental and community setbacks. Fugitive emissions from control valves as well as secondary Mechanical Seal failures in pumps endanger health & safety of employees and surrounding community. In Semiconductor, seal failures before scheduled preventive maintenance result in extended downtime with loss of production. With environmental concerns at heart, FloDynamix strives in providing the most technologically sound products that keep the cost of ownership at a minimum while protecting people and assets.
