U.S. Made Gumlast(TM) L8015 Successfully Benchmarked Against Chemraz® E38

Emeryville, California - Nugeneration Technologies (NuGenTec) announced today that its Gumlast(TM) L8015 has been successfully benchmarked against Chemraz® E38 at Lam Research Corporation, the global leader in dry etch equipment sector. Gumlast(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) L8015 when exposed to the harsh deep silicon etch (DSiE) process environment", said Fred Pourmirzaie, Director of FloDynamix, LLC, a division of Nugentec.

About FloDynamix(TM)

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
