Chlorinated Polyethylene CPE Resin Manufacture
CPE resin is a polymer material made of high-density polythene resin through chlorination reaction. According to its application, VIA Chemical CPE resin can be classified as CPE for plastic impact modification and CM for rubber.
CPE is an excellent and cost-effective impact modifier and can significantly improve the impact strength and temperature resistance of rigid plastic pipe and fittings.
CPE has good flame resistance and is compatible with ABS. Thus, it can be used to make ABS flame resistant.
CPE is also widely used in semi-rigid and soft plastic products. As a non-migratory plasticizer for macro molecule, it can improve the product flexibility and aging and temperature resistance.
Chlorinated Polyethylene CM can be used for producing high-grade waterproofing coiled materials and magnetic rubber, among others.
Chlorinated Polyethylene CM can be used for producing cables and cord sheaths (mine, marine, and locomotive cables), conveyor belts, corrosion-resistant sealing, and rubber hoses for cars (such as oil-conveying pipe, AC hose and brake and steering fluid conveying pipe), rubber dams, and rubber track plates, among others.
Chlorinated Polyethylene CM has good filling characteristic for iron oxide magnetic powder; the magnetic material with CM will have low temperature flexibility. Thus, it is widely used as a sealing strip for refrigerators and magnetic cards, among others.
