What is CSM Rubber?

Chlorosulfonated polyethylene or CSM is a synthetic rubber based on polyethylene. This rubber is a material with Neoprene Polychloroprene plus other qualities. The CSM rubber is suitable for continuous use up to about 130 degree celcius. Chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSM) is known for its excellent resistance to atmospheric conditions and good resistance to chemicals. Chlorosulfonated polyethylene is used in a variety of industrial and automotive applications that require high performance and have to withstand extreme weather conditions. Some poducts where chlorosulfonated polyethylene rubber is used include rubber linings, hoses, valve seals and gaskets etc.


Hypalon® is the trade mark of CSM. Hypalon was developed in 1951 and since then it has become the common name for chlorosulfonated polyethylene. It is a product of DuPont Performance Elastomers, a subsidiary of DuPont. However, it is also manufactured by other manufacturers with different trade names. Hypalon® has always demonstrated durability in harsh environments. This type of rubber is known to be used in applications that require high performance and resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light.
