Chloro-sulfonated Polyethylene Market: Introduction

  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene, also referred to as CSPE, is a family of chlorinated elastomers. Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene is manufactured by the reaction of polyethylene with chlorine and sulfur dioxide. The reaction changes thermoplastic polyethylene into a synthetic elastomer that can be compounded and vulcanized.
  • Basic polyethylene has properties such as chemical inertness, resistance to damage caused by moisture, and good dielectric strength. However, when a chlorine molecule is inserted in the polymer, its resistance to fire (self-extinguishing), oil, and the action of microorganisms increases. Also, it exhibits good adhesion to various surfaces.
  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene compounds offer excellent resistance to ozone, oxidation, sunlight (color degradation), and weather. They are also capable of providing excellent resistance to alkalis and acids.

Applications of Chloro-sulfonated Polyethylene

  • In terms of application, the global chloro-sulfonated polyethylene market can be divided into construction, automotive, wires & cables, coatings, rubber, industrial products, and others. Other uses of chloro-sulfonated polyethylene include manufacture of tubes, tank linings, rubber gaskets, and protective layers, which are acid resistant and resistant to ozone. Well-known consumer products include shoe soles and garden hoses.
  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene vulcanizates have excellent ozone resistance and weatherability, owing to their unique molecular structure. In addition, properly formulated chloro-sulfonated polyethylene vulcanizates have excellent resistance to heat, oil, chemicals, and aging.
  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene is primarily applied in insulating sheathes and jackets of cables, as it is grease proof, deformation proof, and acid proof and it has anti-breaking and anti-abrasion properties
  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene is primarily used in coatings of ebonite compounds, in addition to anti-corrosion coatings of the inside and outside walls of plants and equipment  under acidic and alkali conditions, due to anti-weather and aging characteristics and acid-proof, alkali-proof and solvent-proof properties of chloro-sulfonated polyethylene
  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene is used in power steering and oil cooler hoses for automobiles and industrial hydraulic hoses, wherein impulse testing is performed at temperatures of up to 150°C. Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene is also widely used for fuel hose covers and in various vacuum and emission tubing applications.

Drivers of Global Chloro-sulfonated Polyethylene Market

  • Chloro-sulfonated polyethylene elastomers are made with the help of eco-friendly technologies. They have excellent resistance to heat, oil, fuel, ozone, and UV rays. Properly formulated compounds have good dynamic properties and they offer strong adhesion to various substrates.
