Neoprene is a material made from synthetic rubber and is designed to be flexible, durable, and resilient. It is extremely resistant to compression and liquids such as water, oil, and solvents. Therefore, it is most commonly found in diving suits and waterproof footwear. As a sealing medium, neoprene is a common option for most general purpose flexible rubber gasketing applications. It resists degradation from UV, ozone, and other weather elements, while also displaying incredible resistance to damage caused by flexing and twisting.
