Hypalon® Rubber (CSM)
Hypalon® Rubber is a brand name for the material Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene (CSM).
This synthetic rubber is resistant to chemicals, weathering and water. It can handle temperature extremes and exposure to UV light. The brand name for this material was created by DuPont subsidiary DuPont Performance Elastomers.
What is Hypalon® Rubber?
Often referred to simply as Hypalon®, the characteristics of this material could be considered a superior variation of its original. It has a typical working temperature range of -35ºC to 125ºC.
Ability to resist the aging effects of heat and chemicals resistance are key material properties.
What are the applications of CSM?
CSM materials have the ability to self-extinguish. Hypalon or CSM rubber sheeting is used at Southbourne Rubber to make static rubber seals and are the ideal option when manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Key CSM material features:
- Ideal for use within industrial and transport industries
- Advantages of this material include its ability to withstand exposure to chemicals, the effects of weather and UV light exposure
- Static rubber seals and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are key applications for this material
