I have a cooling water connection on a diesel engine with a Neoprene jacket. The jacket is getting hard and cracking after about 5 years in service. I was thinking about switching to Hypalon. Is it likely that I will get a longer service life from Hypalon? My goal is 10 years. The joints are supposed to conform to ASTM F 1123 which rules out EPDM for the jacket.
