CSM Hypalon       ASTM D 2000, SAE J200 Type/Class CE

General Characteristics

The polyethylene polymer contains additional chlorine and sulfur groups. Chlorine gives the material resistance to flame and mineral oil and also improves the cold flexibility.

AKAs: Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene

Temperature Properties

Heat Heat Resistance Up to 250°F (121°C).
Cold Cold Flexibility Down to approximately –20°F (–29°C).
