Neoprene O-Rings Description:
Neoprene O-Rings | It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), Neoprene | electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan belts.
Neoprene O-rings, also known as Chloroprene(CR) O-rings, offer great resistance to UV light, oxidation, and weather applications. They are made from a cost-effective, water-resistant, and weather-resistant elastomer. These O-rings are most commonly used in the refrigeration industry due to excellent resistance to hazardous chemicals like ammonia and coolants used in refrigeration.
Neoprene was one of the first successfully developed synthetic elastomers in 1931. It is developed by the emulsion polymerization of chloroprene or 2-chlorobutadiene. This elastomer has many applications due to its balanced combination of properties and performs impressively when brought in contact with oils, fats, and petroleum products as well as many other chemicals. It provides outstanding toughness and good resistance to fire while offering good resistance to the sun, ozone, and aging.
