Neoprene Foam (CR Foam)

Neoprene Foam (CR Foam) — Neoprene foam is created using synthetic rubber. They are known to be good water-resistant and furnish better thermal insulation as well cushioning.  Excellent durability and resistance to UV, ageing, oil, solvent and many other chemicals. Neoprene foam is usually utilized in medical braces, wetsuits, HVAC & Insulation, Construction and many other industries.


When used for sealing and insulation, neoprene rubber material offers multiple advantages, including:

  • Resistance to petroleum-based products, greases, and oils.

  • Resistance to water, ozone and weather.

  • Resistance to temperature ranges between -10°C and +80°C.

  • Resistance to damage from twisting and flexing.

Neoprene is very similar to EPDM and often interchangeable depending upon application.

Common question/s:-

Is CR Foam and Neoprene the same?

Yes; Neoprene is often abbreviated as CR, chloroprene has become well known as sponge neoprene or foam rubber.

What's the difference between Neoprene and EPDM foams?

Both are UV resistant rubbers that are also resistant against other natural environmental factors, such as ozone and moisture. In contrast, neoprene material has better resistance to oils than EPDM while EPDM has better outdoor life and environmental-resistance. EPDM is the less expensive of the two materials.

Whats better Neoprene or EPDM?

If you need a less costly and noise-resistant rubber, then EPDM may be the best option for you. If you need a rubber that’s more resistant to chemicals with better thermal insulation, then Neoprene will work better. Not all applications are the same – so it stands to reason that not all materials are the best fit for every application. Given the similarities between EPDM & Neoprene, as EPDM is the cheaper option we are seeing less neoprene used in the market.
