Once a factory has implemented Lean Principles and optimized their cost structure, they need optimize their part design to reduce costs. Equivalent Materials is the first place to look for cost reduction initiatives. All Seals’ extensive application experience can assist the customer in choosing the optimal material. For example, all of these materials:
DAI-EL® (Daikin Industries)
Dyneon®, previously Fluorel® (Dyneon)
Tecnoflon® (Solvay Solexis)
Viton™ (DuPont Dow Elastomers)
have the same chemical structure and Performance. However, they all have different costs.
