Neoprene Rubber Products

From foam to solid sheets, neoprene rubber is a multipurpose elastomer that fits a wide variety of products thanks to benefits like oil and ozone resistance. Timco Rubber specializes in providing neoprene rubber parts manufactured for businesses in need of custom solutions for their applications.

Neoprene Rubber: A Solution for Oil and Ozone Resistance

Neoprene Rubber, also known as polychloroprene or PC Rubber, is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber offering oil, petroleum, and weathering resistance. These characteristics make neoprene a natural fit for the automotive world, where neoprene rubber applications are used for many exposed parts that can encounter oil or petroleum.

Neoprene’s resistances to both oil and weathering also make it a good fit for several other industries that require a reasonably priced, mid-performance polymer with a good all-around balance of performance properties. In addition to oil and weathering resistance, neoprene’s high tensile strength and low compression set make it a very attractive synthetic rubber for outdoor applications. Thanks to these factors, a variety of markets can benefit from neoprene, including the mass transit, wire and cable, food preparation新皇冠体育网, and construction industries.

Neoprene Benefits & Advantages image

Neoprene Benefits & Advantages

  • Outstanding physical toughness
  • Resistance to heat and hydrocarbon oils
  • Resistance to the degradation effects of sun, ozone, and weather
  • Wider short and long-term operating temperature range than other general-purpose hydrocarbon elastomers
  • Better flame retardant/self-extinguishing characteristics than exclusively hydrocarbon-based elastomers
  • Outstanding resistance to damage caused by twisting and flexing
  • Compoundability: Neoprene's polymer structure can be modified to create a material compound with a wide range of chemical and physical properties
