Neoprene Parts to Meet Your Specifications
Neoprene Rubber, also known as chloroprene, polychloroprene or PC Rubber, is an extremely versatile, multipurpose elastomer that is suitable for a wide variety of applications. This synthetic rubber offers good to excellent tensile strength and resistance to abrasion, weather, petroleum, and oil. These features make neoprene rubber suitable for applications in the industrial, mining and heavy construction, military and aerospace, automotive, wire and cable, food service, and transportation industries.
At Aero Rubber, we specialize in manufacturing rubber parts and components. We offer neoprene rubber part production capabilities for customers in need of custom products and solutions for their industry.
Neoprene Mechanical Capabilities
Neoprene rubber is available in a variety of formulations and mechanical properties. Characteristics such as tensile strength can vary depending on the specific compound or formulation of the rubber. In addition to neoprene rubber’s resistance to oil and petroleum products, the material also offers good chemical resistance against alcohol, animal and vegetable oils, LP gases and fuel oils, and refrigerant ammonia.
Neoprene rubber’s mechanical properties include:
- Temperature (Reference): -30° F to 210° F
- Ozone Resistance: Good
- UV Resistance: Good
- Grease/Oil Resistance: Good
- Fuel Resistance: Fair
- Solvent Resistance: Poor
- Abrasion Resistance: Fair
- Tear Resistance: Good
- Tensile Strength: Good to very good
- Vibration Dampening: Good
Advantages of Neoprene
The exceptional mechanical properties of neoprene rubber give the material many advantages over other types of rubber. Neoprene rubber is available in a wide range of compound formulations, including economy, commercial, high, and specification grades. For applications that require it, cloth inserted sheets are available, which increase the material’s strength.
Neoprene rubber has outstanding physical toughness and is resistant to heat, hydrocarbon oils, ozone, sun, and other weather elements. The versatility of neoprene offers a good long and short term operating temperature range when compared to other general-purpose hydrocarbon elastomers.
The formulation of neoprene rubber can be modified to create a material compound with a wide range of chemical and physical properties. Neoprene can withstand a lot. It will give you good to very good physical toughness and resistance to sun, ozone, and weather. Flammability resistant compounds are also available.
