Excel Polymers Introduces New Products to Address Hypalon® Discontinuation

SOLON, Ohio - (June 4, 2010) - Excel Polymers Inc, has developed a family of solutions to address the market need for CSM-alternates. This fills the void created by DuPont Elastomers' discontinuation of their Hypalon® product line of Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene polymers. For approximately a year, Excel has worked in close cooperation with customers to develop specific non-CSM solutions for a number of applications. Some of these new products have exhibited performance advantages over CSM based compounds. These field tested products are now available for sampling in NA, China and India.

Excel Polymers' new product offering includes:

o High and Low durometer extrusion profiles

o High and Low durometer molded electrical connectors

o Molded high temperature and oil resistant connectors

o Hydraulic Hoses

o Industrial Roll Coverings

In addition to the current offerings, Excel's Technical Team is working with customers to expand the product portfolio. Furthermore, Excel has access to a limited quantity of high quality CSM that can be used to develop products for critical applications.

Please contact Excel Polymers for samples or for technical support to develop Hypalon alternates.
