Neoprene is a specific form of rubber, ideal for use in a number of applications as a gasket. In terms of its properties, it has a good level of strength and is resistant to weathering, ageing and abrasion. As well as thicknesses typically ranging from 1/64” to 3/8”. As a result, there should always be neoprene gaskets to suit your needs. But if there isn’t, no problem because we offer bespoke manufacturing of any product.
Ideal For Underwater Use
Neoprene is often found in the aquatic leisure industry, most commonly in diving wetsuits. The reason being that its stretchiness and insulation properties make it the ideal material for underwater use. Not to mention the fact that it’s waterproof. In addition, it performs very well under water pressure. Therefore, it is a very highly performing material in the depths of the oceans.
Durable & Resistant
In terms of industrial use, neoprene is often used in industrial hosing and other instances where the material required needs to be waterproof, durable and resistant. Additional benefits include a burn point of around 260 degrees celsius, very high durability and good noise insulation. With this is mind, neoprene gaskets are great for use in home appliances, where noise minimisation is one of the overriding requirements that customers have. For example, a neoprene buffer in a washing machine can minimise noise and movement. Therefore, allowing for a much higher perception of quality workmanship.
Lower Long-Term Costs
In addition, the durability of neoprene is unrivalled. What’s more, gaskets are more than capable of lasting for decades, so using neoprene means fewer replacements and a lower long-term cost outlay. Not only is neoprene ideal in terms of its quality and properties, but it often works out to be the most cost-effective option on the table.
