Information @ a Glance

  • Chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) is one kind of high molecule elastic material developed in late years, which is one of the random chloride produced through reaction of polyethylene and chlorine. Along with rapid development of plastic and rubber industry, its application becomes much wider.
  • CPE has good flexibility, ozone resistance, weather ability, heat aging, oil resistance, flame retardance, electrical  properties, chemical resistance sex. Flexibility and a weakened resistance to cold.
  • Chlorinated polyethylene products fall into two major categories : one category is resin type, known as a "CPE" logo and the  other is rubber-based, as a "CM" logo.
  • Chlorinated-Polyethylene is odorless nontoxic and white or pale yellow powder with excellent resistance to weathering or age ozone chemicals, and good resistance to oil or flame.
  • Chlorinated-Polyethylene offers excellent flexibility and resistance to ignition, chemicals, heat, low temperatures and weathering at a low overall system cost.
  • CPE is widely used in various plastic profiled bars, building shape bars, pipes and pipe fitting, vacuum  containers for injection, parts and components of automobiles and telecommunication apparatus, and body cases of household electrical appliance, etc.
  • CPE can be used to produce various rubber products which is used in the open air, mines and cold areas, and smoldering conveyer belts, oil resistant rubber, acid resistant rubber, rubber parts of automobiles, rubber shoes, waterproof rolls, sealing adhesive tapes for windows, etc.
  • CPE is widely used in producing excellent cables and electric appratus with heat resistance, ozone resistance, oil resistance and flame retardant property.
  • Chlorinated-Polyethylene can be used as a base polymer or as an additive to polyvinyl chloride (PVC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), high density polyethylene (HDPE), and polypropy- lene (PP) for a wide range of applications spanning both thermoplastic and thermoset chemistries.
  • China and the United States were the two largest consumers of chlorinated polyethylene in 2008.
  • In China, roughly 7580% of the CPE consumed is used for impact modification of PVC for door/window profiles, pipes/drainage applications, and certain styrenic copolymers. The other 2025% of CPE consumed is used in flexible sheeting for roofing applications, electrical wires and cables, and other rubber  product uses (e.g., oil hoses and seals, and new applications).
  • In the United States, 8090% of CPE  consumed is for impact modification and the rest is for other uses including, but not limited to, wire  and cable jacketing, roofing applications, automotive and industrial hose/tubing and molded shapes.
  • CPE consumption in Europe (driven mainly by Central and Eastern Europe), the Middle East/Africa, China and Other is expected to grow at average annual rates of 1.0%, 4.0%, 6.0% and 2.5%, respectively, while the United States and Japan will show a decrease in consumption in the forecast period from 2008 to 2013.
  • About 80% of CPE is used for PVC modification and about 20% for the production of wires, cables and ABS modification. World consumption of CPE is forecast to grow at an average annual rate of about 4%.
