Neoprene

Neoprene is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber with more than 75 years of proven performance in a broad industry spectrum. It was originally developed as an oil-resistant substitute for natural rubber. Neoprene is noted for a unique combination of properties, which has led to its use in thousands of applications in diverse environments.

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.

Temperature: -65°F (-54°C) to°250°F (121°C)
