And now we have CSM Elastomers, too!

Let’s have a closer look at this particular elastomer: CSM, also known as Hypalon by DuPont, is a product of chlorosulphonated polyethylene. The chlorine content in the polymer, varying from between 25% to 45%, determines physical-mechanical characteristics, as well as the chemical and thermic resistance of this material. CSM can be employed in various industrial sectors, in particular the automotive, electrical and building industries.

Besides having good mechanical characteristics and resistance to oxidising and corrosive substances, CSM has an excellent resistance to nitrogen, atmospheric agents, and fire; as well as having a low permeability to vapour and humidity.

Temperature range for its employment: from -40° to +135°C
