Neoprene is a type of synthetic rubber.

Neoprene rubber was developed in the 1930's. Since then, it has been incorporated into numerous products popular in daily life, from wetsuits to protective gear.

Neoprene has a variety of properties that make it quite useful, including being abrasion-resistant, water resistant, somewhat stretchable and buoyant. The many unique qualities of neoprene make it useful in a number of popular products. One of the most popular and visible uses of neoprene is with wetsuits. In wetsuits, neoprene traps water between the wetsuit and the wearer's skin. Body heat warms the water against the skin, which works to reduce heat loss from the body. This reduced heat loss allows someone to comfortably stay in colder water for a longer time. It can also be quite buoyant in the water.

Our Neoprene sheets come in a variety of thicknesses, from very thin 1 mm to thick 7 mm

USES:
  • Neoprene is resistant to many chemicals and oil, making it particularly useful for protective gloves and similar articles.
  • Neoprene is used in some situations where abrasion can be a problem as well.
  • Protective covers for items such as cellular telephones, stubby holders and horse boots.
