What Is Neoprene and Why Is It Useful?
Neoprene is a family of synthetic rubbers that has a variety of uses and applications. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. It is well suited for industrial, medical and business applications because of its chemical resistance and great durability. One very specific use of neoprene is the use of the material in making caster wheels.
