Chloroprene Rubber
Neoprene (a.k.a. Polychloroprene, Chloroprene Rubber) is the first synthetic rubber produced commercially by the free radical emulsion polymerization of chloroprene. It was first marketed by Dupont in 1933 under the DuPrene brand, and after significant improvements in the production process the brand was changed to Neoprene. Nowadays, it is one of the most important special rubbers produced, alongside butyl rubber, nitrile rubber (NBR) and ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM).
The uses and applications of Polychloroprene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polychloroprene are general-purpose grade; crystallization resistant grade; adhesive grade; specialty grade; and latex grade.

Updated Reports Examining Neoprene Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Neoprene manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Neoprene process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Neoprene production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Polychloroprene Production from Chloroprene

This report presents the economics of Chloroprene Rubber (or Polychloroprene) production from chloroprene using a typical emulsion process. The economic analysis is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report CR E11A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polychloroprene Production from Butadiene and Chlorine

This study provides an economic analysis of Polychloroprene production starting from butadiene and chlorine, based on a plant located in the United States. In the first step, butadiene is chlorinated, generating dichlorobutenes, which are subjected to an isomerization to convert them to 3,4-dichloro-1-butene. It is then dehydrochlorinated, forming chloroprene. Finally, chloroprene is polymerized to the respective rubber.

The cost analyses presented in the report CR E21A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

About Neoprene. Neoprene (a.k.a. Polychloroprene, Chloroprene Rubber) is the first synthetic rubber produced commercially by the free radical emulsion polymerization of chloroprene. It was first marketed by Dupont in 1933 under the DuPrene brand, and after significant improvements in the production process the brand was changed to Neoprene. Nowadays, it is one of the most important special rubbers produced, alongside butyl rubber, nitrile rubber (NBR) and ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM).

Neoprene Uses. The uses and applications of Polychloroprene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polychloroprene are general-purpose grade; crystallization resistant grade; adhesive grade; specialty grade; and latex grade.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
