Thermal properties of chlorosulfonated polyethylene via gas–solid phase method

The thermal properties of chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSM), which was prepared via gas–solid phase method, were studied in this article. The thermal curves were completely tested by differential thermal analysis, thermogravimetry, and differential thermogravimetry. The results showed that CSM 3550 and CSM 3570 prepared by gas–solid phase method had more excellent thermal properties (high initial/final temperature of degradation) than those via solution method, due to the uniform chlorine distribution of them in macromolecular chain. The differential scanning calorimetry curves showed that the transitions of CSM 3550 and CSM 3570 from glassy to the elastic state were also higher than those via solution method. Particularly, CSM 3570 was amorphous and no clear melting peak was observed during the melting process.
