Neoprene is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber originally made by Du Pont, with 70 years of proven performance in a broad industry spectrum, including use in navy wet suits. The basic chemical composition of Neoprene synthetic rubber is polychloroprene. Neoprene is noted for a unique combination of properties, which has led to its use in thousands of applications in diverse environments. It has a balanced combination of properties: Resists degradation from sun, ozone and weather Performs well in contact with oils and many chemicals Remains useful over a wide temperature range Displays outstanding physical toughness Resists burning inherently better than exclusively hydrocarbon rubbers Outstanding resistance to damage caused by flexing and twisting The Neoprene used today is laminated on both sides with a stretchable nylon that comes in a variety of attractive colors.
Synthetic rubber made from chloroprene with superior resistance to oils, gasoline, sunlight and the like; used in making rollers and brayers.
A DuPont trademark. Chemically, this synthetic rubber is known as polychloroprene. The physical properties of (CR-Chloroprene) rubber Neoprene are similar in some respects to natural rubber but it is considerably better from the standpoint of resistance to oil, ozone, heat, weather, sunlight and aging. It does not support combustion and resists abrasion and cutting. It is used for a wide variety of wire and cable jacketing applications. The temperature range of this material can vary from -55°C to 90°C.
is often used for miscellaneous gaskets, pads, and strips. Neoprene has a greater resistance than most rubbers to oils, light and heat. (-20°F to 190°)

synthetic material used in motorcyclist equipment due to its insulation and waterproof qualities.
Trade name of the Dupont Co. for the original poly-chloroprene (CR) rubber and latex.
Lightweight rubber used in joint and muscle sleeves designed to provide support and/or insulation and heat retention to the area.
Neoprene is truly a jack-of-all-trades material. Originally designed as an oil-resistant alternative to natural rubber, researchers quickly discovered that this marvelous material could be used in an almost limitless number of applications. Widely known as the basic component in wet suits, neoprene is also used in electrical insulation, fan belts, gaskets, noise insulation pads and even seat covers.
Neoprene is a synthetic ruber made by polimerizing the compound 2-chlorobuta-1,2-diene. Neoprene is often used in place of natural rubber in applications requiring resistance to chemical attack.
A synthetic rubber material that provides excellent tensile strength and heat resistance. Neoprene is compatible with some acids and caustics. It has moderate abrasion resistance.
A synthetic rubber having physical properties closely resembling those of natural rubber but not requiring sulfur for vulcanization. Extremely good weather resistance, both heat and cold, with ultraviolet stability.
Flexible foam rubber used for paddling clothing among other things. Air bubbles in the construction make it buoyant and a good insulator. Neoprene used for paddle clothing and wetsuits is usually coated with Lycra® spandex on one or both sides.
Versatlie type of synthetic rubber with a good resistance to oil, chemicals, and flames.
A synthetic rubber having physical properties closely resembling those of natural rubber. It is made by polymerizing chloroprenes, which are produced from acetylene and hydrogen chloride.
(chemical identification: chloroprene-CR): is a polymer chloroprene rubber known for its resistance to oil, gasoline, sunlight, ozone and oxidation. ItÕs ability to combine all of these properties make it an excellent general purpose polymer for most applications.
