Neoprene, or Polychloroprene is a type of synthetic rubber. It is a soft, Flexible, and durable sponge rubber that has the following unique features:
- WATER RESISTANCE: Neoprene sheds water extremely effectively, making it an ideal outdoor material.
WEATHER RESISTANCE: Neoprene resists degradation from sunlight, ozone, oxidation, rain, snow, sand and dust – all weather conditions that can heavily wear down normal materials.
THERMAL & MOISTURE INSULATION: The gas cells of neoprene make it an ideal insulation material, most notably in wetsuits and can holders.
STRETCHABLE: Neoprene is elastic and form-fitting. The stretchy characteristic of neoprene allows it to applied to equipment, products, and fits of varying sizes and shapes.
CUSHIONING AND PROTECTION: The varying thicknesses and densities of neoprene can provide just the right amount of protection to absorb the shock of everyday handling of your products. Neoprene has been a common choice in electronics protection as well as wearable protection as well in the form of braces and pads.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND BUOYANT: Neoprene contains gas cells which helps the foam stay lightweight and also helps the material naturally float when in water.
