You name it — and the large, durable, weather-resistant, chemical traits of rubber neoprene pads can do it. Within the industry, our neoprene rubber pads are recognized as the Jack of All Trades — offering a quick and cost-effective pad to protect parts and much more.
These pads are uniquely engineered for versatility and can be found on an expansive list of applications, including:
Continue reading to learn more about what makes our neoprene rubber pads unique and one of the most flexible elastomers available.
As previously mentioned, our rubber neoprene pads are found in a vast array of applications, especially under mechanical equipment and industrial machinery. And when they are used in this capacity, they're regularly exposed to grease and oil.
However, many elastomers like natural rubber and styrene-butadiene will have a negative reaction whenever it's exposed to oils. In contrast, our rubber neoprene pads offer the exceptional characteristic of being resistant to grease and oil.
In addition, the neoprene material is less expensive in comparison to nitrile. While both offer excellent oil and grease resistant qualities, the cost savings of rubber neoprene pads make the material the preferred choice, especially for applications where grease and oil exposure isn't the most significant issue.
In general, synthetic elastomers are designed to offer certain qualities that make each material better or less effective for certain applications. Hailed as the all-purpose synthetic elastomer, neoprene rubber pads offer many of the qualities and traits that are most useful in the widest span of applications.
While it may not be the ideal choice for some specific functions, the strength of rubber neoprene pads lies in its versatility. Neoprene boasts resistance to abrasions, moderate tear resistance, and has a relatively low density. These characteristics along with a swarm of others make rubber bumper neoprene pads the all-purpose elastomer.
Our ultra-dense neoprene pads can be used to dampen and isolate noise and vibration. The ability of neoprene to absorb shocks can be directly attributed to its large molecular structure. This elastomer has large networks of molecules that are linked and will flex anytime force is applied.
Once the force is removed, the neoprene molecules will rebound. This flexing and rebounding action causes the initial force to be dissipated. And when vibrations pass through your neoprene rubber pads, the actual strength of the vibration is mitigated.
If you have a specific need, we can create the perfect rubber neoprene die cut. We use state-of-the-art equipment to carefully shape, bearing pads, and more from our rolls of neoprene material to your exact specifications.
