Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is a synthetic rubber that is also known by the trade name Neoprene.
CR has a good balance of properties, including good chemical stability and usefulness over a wide temperature range.
It is mostly applied to bond structures or different materials. To improve the performance, oil-soluble phenolic resin is added to make chloroprene rubber phenolic adhesive, which sets at room temperature and is applied to bond varieties of metal and nonmetal materials including steel, aluminum, copper, ceramic, cement products, plastic and hard fiberboards. In construction, it is used to bond and paste plastic of rubber products on the surface of cement mortar walks or floors.
CR possesses the following properties:
- Good chemical resistance
- High resistance to aging and ozone
- Low risk of Glazing
CR are widely used in general engineering applications, such as in the production of dipped articles (e.g. gloves), wraps and sheets, in various molded goods, in cable coatings, transmission/conveyor belts and profiles and primarily as the material for Gaskets, tubing, O-Rings, Weather stripping and hose (for Gasoline).
