Neoprene.

What is it?

Neoprene rubbers are based on polychloroprene; a polymer composed of chloroprene, acetylene, and hydrochloric acid properties.

What is Neoprene used for?

Neoprene resists degradation more than natural or synthetic rubber. This relative inertness makes it well suited for demanding applications such as gaskets, hoses, and corrosion-resistant coatings. It is also used to make wet suits, diving suits and life jackets.
