Neoprene Washer FAQs
What are Neoprene Washers?
Neoprene rubber is a type of synthetic rubber that is produced by polymerizing chloroprene. It is a highly versatile, durable and flexible material that has many practical applications. Neoprene rubber, chemically known as polychloroprene, is known for its excellent resistance to heat, weathering, oils, and chemicals. These properties make it ideal for use in harsh environments.
What Can Neoprene Washers Be Used For?
Neoprene washers are mainly used for creating water-tight seals and external seal. They are extremely resistant to oil, chemical corrosion and fuel, making them fantastic for sealing joins in industrial pipes. Neoprene is also strong and abrasion resistant, and is a great material to use for insulating parts against vibration and shock.
What Are The Main Features Of Neoprene Rubber Washers?
- Neoprene rubber washers are:
- Highly resistant to heat, weathering, oils, and chemicals
- Flame retardant
What Grades Of Thickness Can Neoprene Washers Be Supplied In?
We supply grade KN002 neoprene washers and Neoprene EDPM washers. We can cut washers as thin as 1.5mm and as thick as 65mm, and anywhere in between.
Are Neoprene Washers Environmentally Friendly?
Neoprene or polychloroprene is a polymer or plastic material, derived from petrochemicals such as crude oil. Because these are not renewable products and do not degrade in the environment, neoprene cannot be considered sustainable. The processes of polymerisation and vulcanisation that produce neoprene can also contribute to emissions that cause air pollution and climate change. However, while plastics do not degrade in the environment, neoprene can be recycled and is much more durable than other similar materials, so has a longer useful lifespan.
