About Polychloroprene. Polychloroprene (a.k.a. Neoprene, 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).
Chemical Formula. (C4H5Cl)n
Commercial Grades. General-purpose grade; Crystallization resistant grade; Adhesive grade; Specialty grade; Latex grade
Uses. Molded goods; contact adhesives; latex dipping components; flexible mechanical components; insulation of electrical wiring; belts ;hoses
- Acetylene + hydrochloric acid (radical polymerization of chloroprene)
