CSM Hypalon

CSM is a synthetic rubber material known by the trade name Hypalon®, which was originally developed by DuPont and is now manufactured by various companies. CSM Hypalon offers a unique combination of properties that make it suitable for a wide range of applications, particularly in demanding environments where resistance to chemicals, weathering, and extreme temperatures is required.

Here are some key features and considerations of CSM Hypalon:

  1. Chemical Resistance: CSM Hypalon exhibits excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, oils, and solvents. This chemical resistance makes it suitable for applications where exposure to harsh chemicals is expected, such as in industrial seals, gaskets, and linings.

  2. Weather Resistance: CSM Hypalon offers exceptional weather resistance, including resistance to ozone, UV radiation, and weathering. It maintains its physical properties and appearance over prolonged exposure to outdoor conditions, making it suitable for outdoor applications in harsh environments.

  3. Temperature Stability: CSM Hypalon maintains its properties over a wide range of temperatures, from approximately -45°C to 150°C (-49°F to 302°F), depending on the specific formulation and application requirements. This temperature stability makes it suitable for use in both hot and cold environments.

  4. Flexibility and Elasticity: CSM Hypalon is flexible and elastic, allowing it to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces without losing its integrity. It can be easily molded, stretched, and fabricated into various forms, including gaskets, seals, and liners.

  5. Tensile Strength and Tear Resistance: CSM Hypalon exhibits high tensile strength and tear resistance, making it durable and resistant to mechanical stress and abrasion. This property ensures long-term performance in demanding applications where the material is subjected to high mechanical loads.

  6. Flame Resistance: CSM Hypalon is inherently flame resistant and self-extinguishing, meaning it does not support combustion and will not continue to burn once the ignition source is removed. This flame resistance makes it suitable for applications where fire safety is a concern.

  7. Applications: CSM Hypalon is used in a wide range of industrial, automotive, marine, and aerospace applications where durability, chemical resistance, weather resistance, and temperature stability are required. Common applications include seals, gaskets, liners, diaphragms, hoses, roofing membranes, and inflatable structures.

Overall, CSM Hypalon offers a versatile and reliable solution for applications requiring exceptional resistance to chemicals, weathering, and extreme temperatures. Its unique combination of properties makes it suitable for use in demanding environments where other materials may fail to perform adequately.
