Elaslen™ is the brand name for Showa Denko’s Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE), which is produced at our Kawasaki plant in Japan since 1968.

We offer a wide product range: with different Chlorine contents from 25 – 40%, from very low to extremely high molecular weights, and non-crystalline as well as semi-crystalline grades. This enables the variation of the performance regarding flame retardancy, chemical resistance, mechanical strength or heat aging resistance, depending on the application such as wire & cable jackets, tubes and hoses, gaskets, roller covers, or impact modifier.
