Neoprene (also polychloroprene) is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability, excellent resistance to oil/petroleum and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. These characteristics makes it a natural fit for the automotive world.
Mechanical Strength - Neoprene has good mechanical strength and abrasion resistance.
High ozone and weather resistance
Good aging resistance
Compoundability : Neoprene's polymer structure can be modified to create a material compound with a wide range of chemical and physical properties
Low flammability – Has high resistance to flames and self-extinguishing properties
Capability of adhesion to many substrates.
Outstanding resistance to damage caused by twisting and flexing
