Neoprene is a brand name developed by a chemical manufacturing company; falling within a family of synthetic rubbers, it's very commonly used to manufacture custom rubber gaskets and seals for a number of industries, based on polychloroprene. This family of rubbers was developed as an oil-resistant alternative to natural rubber products, since many rubber custom gaskets and seals are subject to environments where they may come in direct contact with oils. The great thing about fabricating or manufacturing neoprene rubber custom gaskets is that they have a wide range of beneficial properties, such as:

  • Ozone resistance as well as resistance to many other weather elements (ultraviolet light, sunlight, etc.).
  • Resistance to both natural and synthetic oils as well as other chemicals.
  • Being useful over a very wide range of temperatures.
  • Resistance to tears or damage caused by flexing and/or twisting.
  • Resistance to burning (much better than rubbers that are composed of exclusively hydrocarbon chains).
