Bonding Compounds for Neoprene

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that has outstanding resilience and resists degradation from oil, grease, sun, ozone and weather. It retains its durability, toughness, flexibility over a wide service operating temperature range. Produced by polymerization of chloroprene, neoprene can withstand flexing and twisting. Applications include:

  • Electrical insulation
  • Orthopedic braces
  • O-rings
  • Vibration mounts
  • Diaphragms
  • Automotive fan belts

Consideration for Bonding Neoprene—Resiliency

Resilient, flexible and toughened compounds are designed for high performance even in hostile environmental conditions. They are also serviceable at low to high temperatures. A few of our dominant compounds include EP21LV3/5Med, EP30FL and EP51FL. Two part, low viscosity EP21LV3/5Med cures at ambient temperatures. USP Class VI approved, this formulation resists exposure to cold sterilants, ethylene oxide and radiation. EP30FL is easy to apply and has superb electrical insulation properties. It withstands impact, shock, vibration and is cryogenically serviceable. Rapid room temperature curing EP51FL has a convenient one to one mix ratio. This product offers high bond strength and is user friendly.
