Solid Neoprene Rubber Strip - 1.5mm Thick, Various Widths Available - 5/10m Lengths - Door Seal, Weather Strip, Gasket Making (5m x 25mm Wide)
About this deal
Neoprene rubber was first developed in the 1930’s and has since become one of the most popular rubber materials worldwide, adopted by many industries such as Automotive, Construction, Marine & Aquatic, Electrical, Engineering and Aerospace & Defence. The primary disadvantage of neoprene is its cost. Several other materials offer similar characteristics at a lower price. Neoprene also offers poor resistance to strong oxidising acids, esters, ketone and certain hydrocarbons. Other rubber materials deliver superior oil resistance. Neoprene can absorb water over time and is not recommended as an electrical insulator. Neoprene applications

Outstanding Durability: Neoprene rubber is highly durable and resistant to abrasion, tear and wear. With the ability to withstand heavy usage and demanding conditions, it is suitable for applications that require long-lasting performance and reliability. In the marine and aquatic domain, Neoprene rubber’s water resistance and insulation properties make it the go-to choice for equipment including wetsuits, gloves, boots and other protective gear used for watersports and diving. It’s also well suited for seals and gaskets found in marine equipment or boats, ensuring reliable performance and preventing water ingress that could potentially cause damages. Electrical: Key Uses: Numerous component uses in the transportation field. Recommended for exposure to weathering. Preferred sealing material for refrigeration industry.
Neoprene’s waterproof and corrosion resistant properties make it resilient to a range of environmental factors, including UV, ozone and oxidation. Neoprene’s good thermal stability means it remains flexible over a wide temperature range of -40 °C to +120 °C.

Neoprene rubber exhibits excellent dielectric properties and is suitable for cable insulation within the electrical industries, commonly used to provide insulation and protection against electrical currents or environmental factors. It can also be used in electrical connectors and sealing applications, offering a reliable and moisture-resistant connection. Engineering: EPDM/Neoprene Blend sponge is an extremely versatile material, combining the properties of both types of sponge, excellent weathering and outdoor resistance of EPDM and the oil/chemical resistance of neoprene, making it the ideal choice for many outdoor sealing applications. Advanced Seals & Gaskets work with many material manufacturers and suppliers, giving our customers more choice when designing their neoprene rubber seal. Neoprene rubber seals can be supplied in a number of grades and hardness’s, some of the main ones being: Featuring a 1ply layer of Nylon embedded within Neoprene rubber, our diaphragm sheet is designed to provide enhanced strength, tear resistance and durability, making it suitable for the most demanding applications. Additionally Neoprene/Nylon Insertion Diaphragm rubber offers excellent mechanical properties and resistance to water, oil, UV light and fuels.
Rubber Door Seals - Without Metal Infil
All latex is basically disintegrating from the moment it cured. Some divers can get 5 years out of a set seals., others only manage a matter of months. Disregarding mechanical damage degradation is accelerated by a long list on factors exposure to UV light, ozone (natural or from electrical motors, like compressors), products you put on your hair and body like conditioner and sun screen, petrol chemicals like outboard motor fuel on the water and there are many more. Flexibility Across Temperature Extremes: Neoprene rubber can retain its flexibility and elastic properties across a broad temperature range. It remains pliable and functional in both high and low temperature conditions, making it suitable for a diverse range of applications in various climate conditions.
