Chloroprene vs. Neoprene
Chloroprene and Neoprene Definitions
A colorless liquid, C4H5Cl, that polymerizes to neoprene.
A synthetic rubber produced by polymerization of chloroprene and used in weather-resistant products, adhesives, shoe soles, sportswear, paints, and rocket fuels.
(organic compound) The chlorinated derivative of butadiene 2-chloro-1,3-butadiene that is used (via polymerization) in the manufacture of synthetic rubber.
A synthetic rubber, a polymer of chloroprene, commonly used in wetsuits, laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces, electrical insulation, liquid and sheet-applied elastomeric membranes and flashings, car fan belts, etc.
Derivative of butadiene used in making neoprene by polymerization
A synthetic rubber that is resistant to oils and aging; used in waterproof products
