Difference Between Chloroprene and Neoprene
(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
