THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES OF RUBBER

Chloronated Polyethylene (CPE)

The rubber:

A chlorined polyethylene rubber.

Resistance and properties:

Good chemical resistancy to fluid hydrocarbons at elevated temperatures. CPE is also resistant to many oxidising and corrosive chemicals.

Downsides:

CPE has poor mechanical qualities at temperatures above + 100 degrees Celsius.

Applications:CPE is used in hose linings and thermoplastic applications, such as wire and cable jackets, rigid foam, fabric coatings and adhesive seals.
