Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that demonstrates strong tear strength and compression set as well as resistance to UV and ozone damage. It is waterproof, corrosion, and flame resistant and, unlike EPDM, provides good resistance to petroleum-based products. Neoprene gaskets can be made of solid or sponge materials.
At JBC, our goal is to offer a gasket solution that provides the best form, fit, and function to achieve its intended end use. Often, design constraints dictate the need for specific material properties. Other times, a wide spectrum of choices are available to achieve success. The materials listed on this page represent a sampling of the gasket materials we die cut at JBC.
