CSM - Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene Or Hypalon

CSM, also known as chlorosulfonated polyethylene or Hypalon is a synthetic rubber material with unique properties. Here are some of the key properties and characteristics of CSM rubber:

  1. Chemical Resistance: CSM rubber offers excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, oils, and industrial chemicals. It is known for its resistance to oxidation, ozone, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

  2. Weatherability: CSM rubber has exceptional weathering characteristics, making it highly resistant to sunlight, ozone, and harsh outdoor conditions. It maintains its physical properties and resists degradation and color fading caused by UV radiation and environmental exposure.

  3. Temperature Resistance: CSM rubber exhibits good resistance to both high and low temperatures. It can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to 125°C (-104°F to 257°F) without significant loss of properties. This makes it suitable for various applications in extreme temperature environments.

  4. Physical Durability: CSM rubber is known for its durability and resistance to abrasion, tearing, and punctures. It retains its flexibility and mechanical properties over a wide temperature range, ensuring long-lasting performance in demanding applications.

  5. Flame Resistance: CSM rubber is highly flame resistant and self-extinguishing. It has a low flammability rating and releases minimal smoke and toxic gases when exposed to fire. These properties make it suitable for applications where fire safety is critical.

  6. Flexibility and Elasticity: CSM rubber exhibits good flexibility and elasticity, allowing it to withstand repeated stretching, compression, and bending without permanent deformation. It can be easily molded into various shapes and forms.

  7. Electrical Insulation: CSM rubber possesses good electrical insulation properties, making it suitable for use in electrical applications where high dielectric strength and resistance to electrical breakdown are required.

  8. Adhesion: CSM rubber has good adhesion properties, allowing it to bond well with various substrates and materials. It can be easily bonded to metals, fabrics, and other rubber compounds, enabling its use in the manufacture of composite materials.

  9. Gas and Liquid Impermeability: CSM rubber exhibits good impermeability to gases and liquids, making it an effective material for sealing and waterproofing applications. It is commonly used in gaskets, seals, O-rings, and other applications where a reliable barrier against fluids or gases is required.

CSM rubber is widely used in various industries, including automotive, construction, marine, electrical, and chemical processing. Its unique combination of chemical resistance, weatherability, temperature resistance, and physical durability makes it a preferred choice for applications that require excellent performance in challenging environments and we customize the compound to meet specific requirements.
