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
