Neoprene rubber is a synthetic rubber composed of polymerized chloroprene. It was originally intended to serve as on oil-resistant substitute for natural rubber, but since its invention neoprene’s other properties have enabled its use a rubber alternative in a wide range of applications. When compared with natural rubber, neoprene is more gas permeation resistant and can tolerate higher temperatures, up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (F).
- Sizes: 1/16” – 1/2
- Applications: This material is especially useful in industrial applications such as corrosion-resistant coatings, as a base for various adhesives and in gasket making. Additionally, it is fire-resistant and commonly used in power transformers and other electrical applications. It is suitable for applications where oil resistance is needed, such as aerospace and petrochemical.
- Pressure: 1,000 psi
- Temperature: 30 Deg F to +200 Deg F
