Hypalon is a trademark for chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE) synthetic rubber (CSM) noted for its resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light. It was a product of DuPont Performance Elastomers, a subsidiary of DuPont.
Along with PVC, CSM is one of the most common materials used to make inflatable boats and folding kayaks. It is also used in roofing materials and as a surface coat material on radomes owing to its radar-transparent quality.
Hypalon is also commonly used as a replacement for neoprene rubber.
Hypalon is widely used for its great flame resistance as well as an excellent color stability. For the most part, it is the Weather and abrasion resistance and low moisture absorption that make it stand out between other rubber types.Rubber temperature restistance chart (in °C) Available qualities
