DuPont Performance Elastomers Hypalon ceased operations as of April 20, 2010...

Been doing a little research on Hypalon and was direced back to tm holder Dupont's website that anounced:
"The DuPont Performance Elastomers Hypalon® business has ceased operations as of April 20, 2010. The planned closure was initially announced in 2009, and the plant operation was extended to support the needs of customers through the transition process.

We are no longer offering Hypalon® product for sale. If you are interested in a replacement product, please view the broader DuPont portfolio for other Elastomers that may fit your application needs."

Wonder how this is going to effect the rib world?
