Rubber-Cal’s Neoprene sheet is a tough synthetic rubber material that is ideal for industrial applications. Sometimes referred to by its chemical name chloroprene, neoprene rubber is a versatile material developed by DuPont in the 1930s. The introduction of neoprene elastomer met the increasing demand for a rubber material that could resist chemicals and outdoor conditions. While other types of synthetic rubber may degrade quickly under intense physical conditions, this sheet neoprene is designed to endure. Our neoprene rubber is actually a powerful compound made up of SBR and chloroprene rubber (CR) to inherit the strengths of both synthetic elastomers. This unique neoprene blend gives the sheet rubber a moderate resistance to oils, chemicals, and many damaging effects of weather. The solid neoprene has a sleek black finish, adding a professional aesthetic to this highly resistant rubber sheeting. The key feature of this rubber neoprene is its wide range of resistance. Thanks to the unique synthetic rubber compound that makes it up, Rubber Cal’s sheet neoprene has moderate resistance to acetic acids, petroleum-based solvents, and certain oils and chemicals. Rubber neoprene is designed to stand up to these substances that can easily degrade other synthetic rubbers. This neoprene sheet is also highly valued in outdoor applications, as it can withstand UV rays, ozone, and damaging weather effects without showing wear for a long time. Though other sheet rubber materials may have stronger resistance to some of these conditions, no other material offers the diverse cumulation of resistance that neoprene rubber does. Our neoprene sheet offers excellent all-around resistance, making it versatile enough for indoor and outdoor applications alike. Neoprene material is also valued for its intense temperature range and resistance. This hard sheet rubber performs well in temperatures from -20° to 212° F, which makes it the ideal choice for most industrial applications. High temperatures and industrial machinery are no match for this tough rubber material, which is available in 10 different gauges to ensure the proper fit for any application. This 3/32” neoprene is one of the thinner options available and works best in highly detailed or delicate applications. Different applications may also require varying levels of neoprene durometer. This thin neoprene has a durometer of 60A, giving it a hard surface and a moderate amount of flexibility. The 60-durometer neoprene is stiff yet pliable, and works best in highly abrasive applications such as neoprene pads or bumpers. The sheet neoprene can also be cut down and used to make rubber lining, seals, and gaskets. This versatile neoprene sheet is the perfect material for countless industrial, commercial, and even residential applications.
