Chloroprene Rubber (CR)

Chloroprene, commonly known as Neoprene®, was originally developed as an oil resistant synthetic rubber with a similar molecular structure to that of natural rubber.

Chloroprene Rubber (CR)

Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is a good general purpose rubber with excellent balance of physical and chemical properties. Generally good mechanical strength balanced with resistance to chemicals, ozone and weathering. Chloroprene has moderate fuel and oil resistance.

Chloroprene Rubber is not recommended for exposure to strong oxidizing acids, esters, ketones, chlorinated aromatic and nitro hydrocarbons.

A wide range of applications include cable/wire jacketing, automotive (belts, hoses, motor mounts, CV boots, braking and steering systems) general industrial, construction, refrigeration, textile and sporting goods industries. Operational temperature range from -40° to 250° F
