ROHNERT PARK, California (September 08, 2009) – NuGeneration Technologies (NuGenTec) announced today that its Gumlast™ L8010 has been successfully benchmarked against Kalrez® 6375 at Chevron Richmond refinery. Gumlast™ L8010 is 100% pure FFKM (perfluoroelastomer) 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™ L8010 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™ L8010 is priced at or near 50% of most other FFKMs in the market today.
Because of Kalrez® 6375’s quality reputation in the manufacturing industry, NuGenTec considers this benchmarking status to be noteworthy for a U.S.A. manufactured product with a significantly lower price point. “Kalrez® 6375 is a well-known material for its chemical resistance and we are very excited to match its performance with Gumlast™ L8010 when exposed to the harsh refinery environment”, said Mr. Fred Pourmirzaie, Business Manager for FloDynamix, LLC. a division of NuGenTec.
