FloDynamix Announces U.S. Made Gumlast™ L8013 Successfully Qualified in Temperature Critical Diffusion Process
April 6, 2011 – Emeryville, California (PRlog)—FloDynamix LLC announced today that its Gumlast™ L8013 has been successfully qualified in temperature critical diffusion process. A major 200mm US semiconductor fab has qualified L8013 in a vertical diffusion process. The fab extended PM cycle by full 3 months at 50% cost savings compare to incumbent seal. Gumlast™ is 100% pure perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) and is manufactured in the U.S.A. Utilizing proprietary pseudo-living polymerization; multiple grades have been formulated to optimize the performance of the molded parts in many different applications. Gumlast™ L8013 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™ L8013 is priced at or near 50% of most other FFKMs in the market today.

Because of the critical role of sealing components in the semiconductor processes, NuGenTec considers this benchmarking status to be noteworthy for a U.S.A. manufactured product with a significantly lower price point. “High Temperature Oxidation (HTO) process where process temperature can exceed 900°F truly challenges the seals' thermal resistance and its compression set properties & we are very excited that L8013 delivered the performance that was needed" said Fred Pourmirzaie, director of FloDynamix LLC, a division of NuGeneration Technologies LLC.  

About Nugeneration Technologies (NuGenTec)

NuGenTec, a producer of high performance materials and chemicals is focused on delivering the best value to end-users across multiple market segments. The company supplies customers in high-tech, medical device and industrial industry, in particular in the disk drive, semi-conductor, read-write head, precision optics, fiber optic, aerospace, and the printed circuit board industries. Founded in 1997, NuGeneration Technologies produces over 600 products and develops solutions for customers based on inherent strengths in science and technology. The business approach and philosophy is centered around “Total Process Integration” through specialty formulated chemistries. By supporting customers' developments, the company is able to eliminate process limitations and meet the specific requirements that allow them to succeed. 

FloDynamix had its beginning in early 2007 with the aim of providing sealing solutions that substantially reduce 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 cost of ownership at minimum while protecting people and assets. In 2008 FloDynamix and NuGeneration Technologies joined forces to better serve the market. While trained as Engineers & Scientists, FloDynamix founders have over 50 years of combined industry experience in Oil and Gas, Chemical Processing & Electronics industries. FloDynamix’ line of products will:  

• Reduce installed cost
• Reduce cost of ownership
• Improve PM cycle frequency
