Neoprene rubber

Polychloroprene or neoprene was developed as a synthetic rubber originally intended to be an oil resistant substitute for natural rubber. Natural rubber is a polymer of isoprene that has a similar structure to that of chloroprene (a methylene group is found in isoprene -CH3, in place of the chlorine atom). The presence of chlorine atoms makes polychloroprene chemically inerter than natural rubber. It is also more strongly adhesive than natural rubber. The remaining double bonds in the polymer permit it, just like natural rubber, to vulcanise, i.e. it lays cross-linking polymer chains which improve the properties of the rubber.
Neoprene rubber can be applied extensively. Among other things it is used as the basis for glues, surgical gloves, gaskets (because of the chemical inertia) and for insulation (also for insulating clothing: the divers’ “Wetsuit” is based on neoprene).

Neoprene cell rubber has inbuilt fire resistant properties and is extremely weather resistant, and is ozone and UV resistant. Additionally neoprene has oil resistant properties. It has a heat resistance of up to 80 degrees C.
