Neoprene rubber has an extensive range of beneficial properties including: resistance to ozone and other weather elements; resistance to oils and other chemicals; it is useful over a wide temperature range; it resists tears or damage caused by flexing and twisting and resists burning better than hydrocarbon-only rubbers.
Because of these properties, Neoprene rubber is useful in a variety of applications. Neoprene rubber gaskets and neoprene grommets are used in devices that are exposed to extreme chemicals and temperatures. Neoprene gaskets are often used in the automotive, oil and gas industries as a seal against corrosive environments and weather elements. Neoprene grommets are used in electrical connectors in the aerospace and electronics industries.
