Neoprene (CR)

Neoprene was the first synthetic rubber to be developed commercially.  It was invented in 1930 by DuPont™ scientists as an oil-resistant substitute for Natural Rubber.  Neoprene is a homopolymer of chloroprene (chlorobutadiene).

Features & Benefits

  • Good resistance to ozone, UV, and oxygen aging
  • Good resilience
  • Low compression set
  • Outstanding physical toughness
  • Good resistance to petroleum oils
  • Excellent resistance to freon and ammonia make Neoprene the preferred material for refrigeration applications
