Neoprene rubber is a popular synthetic elastomer that features a resistance to some oils, chemicals, and weathering. This 50 durometer neoprene material is made of a blend of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) and nitrile rubber in addition to the neoprene itself. This mid-level durometer means that the material is softer and more flexible than 60A or 70A Shore rubber sheets, giving the end-user more options in terms of applications for the material. First developed in the 1930’s, this elastomer is still popular today for use as industrial bumpers, seals, and general gasket applications. Neoprene sheet rubber is available in a variety of popular gauges to better suit the needs of individual projects.

A More Flexible Rubber: This black neoprene sheet has a durometer rating of 50, which is a medium grade level. This medium durometer level attributes a moderate amount of flexibility and durability. It is a moderately pliable and elastic rubber when compared to neoprene material of a higher durometer rating. This increased elasticity makes it more open to physical indentation. This flexible neoprene can easily be applied to any industrial applications that need pliable rubber components.

Neoprene Resistance Quality: Neoprene rubber is known to exhibit moderate levels of resistance against oils, chemicals, and environmental factors. These resistance qualities were what made neoprene material famous in the first place. Its durability in the presence of oils and chemicals means that it is good for industrial applications in the forms of seals and gaskets. As an added benefit, our neoprene sheet rubber can also be used in the outdoors because it features resistance capabilities against weathering factors such as ozone.

Customization Options: Rubber-Cal offers customization for a number of neoprene material specifications. These include customization for widths, gauges, and cuts. Although the most popular gauges are typically available, gauges that are up to 2” thick can be made upon request. Widths are usually available in 36” and 48”. However, widths up to 78” are also available. In regards to cutting neoprene sheet rubber, Rubber-Cal provides multiple options in addition to hand fabrication. These options include water-jet, die, and laser cut. For custom cuts, drawings are requested in order to provide a price quote.
