To resist moisture intrusion, multiple layers of polyethylene and water-resistant chemicals integrated within the materials and a chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) outer jacket can provide protection.
1) provides the benefits of enhanced scorch protection and improved polymer rheology in chlorinated polyethylene.

Chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) has also been reported to be efficient as adhesion promoter and compatibilizer between polymer blends and fillers in composites (23).
The polymer for this porous cushion can be polyurethane, polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinyl chloride, chlorinated polyethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer, polyethyl methacrylate, polystyrene, styrene-butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer, polyvinyl formal, epoxy, phenol, urea, or silicone.
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.
Chlorine-containing polymers such as PVC and chlorinated polyethylene, for instance, must be fully purged before shutdown or they will break down quickly to form carbon and dangerous, corrosive chlorine gas.
They are: Engage polyolefin elastomers, Nordel ethylene propylene rubber products and Tyrin chlorinated polyethylene (CPE).
The blending of an engaineering grade resin, such as polyvinylchloride (PVC), with an elastomer, for example, chlorinated polyethylene (CPE), can give several positive results: (1) CPE is non-volatile and does not migrate if blended with PVC; therefore compositions with CPE have a considerably longer service life than PVC alone; (2) addition of CPE to PVC reduces its brittleness, raises impact strength and fire resistance, and improves other properties; (3) addition of PVC to CPE, in turn, upgrades its barrier characteristics as well as stress-strain behaviour.
Made of Standard Safety's uniquely formulated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and chlorinated polyethylene, DuPont StaSafe garments provide tough resistance against a broad range of inorganic chemicals.
These include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), chlorinated polyethylene (CPE), chlorosulfonated polyethylene, polyisobutylene (butyl), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), polychloroprene polymer (neoprene), polyolefin, and others.
