Neoprene rubber is well-known for its oil-resistant properties, thus making it best suited for applications that require good resistance to oil and petroleum based solvents. Neoprene rubber has excellent resistance to dilute acids, has good weathering and ozone resistance, and good resilience in hot and cold temperatures.
At Gasket Supply we carry Neoprene grades are available as thin as .016″ thick up to .250″ thick. We offer Neoprene grades in continuous rolls of 36″, 48″, or 54″ wide or we can CNC cut or waterjet cut each grade to your exact requirements. All Neoprene grades come in a measure of hardness (durometer) as soft as 30 durometer and as hard as 90 durometer.
Available Neoprene Grades
Commercial Grade Neoprene
Commercial Grade Neoprene (13% Neoprene base) is a blend of Neoprene and other rubber elastomers. Commercial grade Neoprene is suitable in general gasket applications but not recommended in applications where high oil resistance is required.
Medium Grade Neoprene
Medium Grade Neoprene (51% Neoprene base) is the choice material if you need properties of Neoprene but do not require high tensile strength or compliance with military and federal specifications. Conforming to irregular shapes and sealing under minimum pressure, medium grade Neoprene is used for most general-purpose applications.
High Grade Neoprene
High Grade Neoprene (100% Neoprene base) maintains resiliency after extended compression and endures rough handling with minimal abrasion. High tensile strength makes high-grade Neoprene ideal for the most rigorous applications.
FDA Neoprene is made from FDA approved ingredients per CFR 117.2600 (off-white color). FDA Neoprene has been developed to meet military and federal specifications for oil resistance and is a preferred material for applications in industries such as food, automotive, and industrial.
Using computer numeric controlled (CNC) technology, Gasket Supply is able to manufacture custom Neoprene rubber gaskets to any configuration needed. Upon request, Neoprene rubber gaskets can be custom manufactured with an acrylic adhesive backing.
