Neoprene sheet rubber is a general purpose industrial gasketing material for use with non-aromatic petroleum oils and greases.
Well-known as a highly resilient, all-purpose synthetic rubber, Neoprene is one of the industry’s most relied-upon materials.
It performs in a multitude of industrial settings, and its resistance to degradation makes it an essential element in a number of different industries.
Neoprene is one of the most versatile materials in existence and has found a place in virtually countless applications. It features a number of important properties, including:
- Excellent chemical resistance — Neoprene works well while in contact with a full range of chemicals and oils, making it a vital part of applications in even the most challenging industrial conditions.
- Works in any weather or temperature — This synthetic rubber resists degradation in a full range of temperature and other outdoor conditions, maintaining integrity while in the sun, ozone, cold, or inclement weather.
- Maintains its properties in any form — Whether customers need Neoprene in solid sheet, open cell, or closed cell forms, it retains its chemical- and weather-resistant properties.
- Tough and resilient — Some of the properties of Neoprene rubber include excellent abrasion resistance, good tear resistance, excellent resilience, and good-to-excellent adhesion to metals. It features a tensile range of 500 to 3000 psi and a durometer range (Shore A) of 20 to 95.
