Product Information

Versatile Neoprene (CR) foam rubber

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber which is achieved after the polymerization of chloroprene. The presence of the chlorine atom improves the chemical resistance making it superior to, for example SBR and natural rubber, and gives the rubber better weather, -heat, -ozone withstanding qualities. Neoprene is a very versatile rubber quality. Besides very good mechanical and elastic qualities, neoprene is also resistant to numerous chemicals. Neoprene has average to good resistance to mineral and synthetic oils, grease and fuels. Neoprene has however poor low temperature flexibility. Temperature range -40°C to +120°C.

The sheets and strips are used for sealing two surfaces or gaps in a specific appliance. Various industrial sectors use our products from construction and electrical to lighting and automotive Companies. Sheets are used for sound deadening purposes, leakage prevention, airflow reduction, packaging purposes as well as insulation, cushioning and shock absorption.

Execution

The Neoprene foam rubber is available in strips, sheets and plates.  The strips are cut by VR Trade at the time the order is placed. This guarantees a good glue layer. The strips, sheets and plates can be supplied with or without one side self adhesive.
