Neoprene is a soft, flexible, and durable synthetic sponge rubber that has the following unique features:
WATER RESISTANCE: Neoprene sheds water like a duck, making it an ideal outdoor material and an excellent choice for surf suits, wet (diving) suits and dry suits..
WEATHER RESISTANT: Neoprene resists degradation from sunlight, ozone, oxidation, rain, snow, sand and dust- all weather conditions.
THERMAL AND MOISTURE INSULATION: the cells of neoprene make it an ideal insulation material, most notably in wetsuits.
STRETCHABLE: Neoprene is elastic and form-fitting; it conforms to objects/equipments of varying sizes and shapes.
CUSHIONING AND PROTECTION: Neoprene comes in various thickness and density to absorb the shock of everyday handling (shock protection)
LIGHTWEIGHT AND BUOYANCY: containing gas cells that are lightweight and can float on the water.
CHEMICAL AND OIL RESISTANT: Neoprene performs well in contact with oils and many chemicals and remains useful over a wide temperature range (that is why many companies use neoprene for protective gear and clothing)
LATEX FREE: There is no latex in neoprene- no allergy that associated with latex will be found in neoprene.
