Neoprene is a synthetic rubber material first made available for commercial use in the 1930s. Today, it is in wide use throughout the industrial spectrum. The process of neoprene molding is one way of processing the material for use in diverse applications.
Neoprene finds employment in a variety of different applications. This is in part due to its ability to maintain flexibility even under the most challenging environmental conditions. By molding it, companies such as ours can produce countless items, including:
- Computers and electronic equipment, e.g., sleeves and cases
- Conveyor belts
- Medical devices
- Mounting pads
- Timing belts
Neoprene finds great favor among our customers in the electronics and automotive industries.
The reason for the popularity of neoprene products over other rubber – real or synthetic– results from the material’s specific qualities. Neoprene molding produces items that possess the following properties or characteristics:
- Exceptional durability
- Weather resistance
- Chemical inertness
- Ozone impervious
- UV ray resistance,
- Superior flame opposition
- Excellent buoyancy
Such qualities allow products composed of neoprene to outperform others of similar rubber or plastic materials. The availability of neoprene in different grades of foam, dry, and liquid formats increases its ability for utilization in diverse applications. Moreover, the preciseness in which personnel can use the material for molding purposes also makes it desirable for molding Molded Devices Inc. and other companies. The added bonus for our customers is the cost. The process is not only efficient and effectual, it is also cost-effective.
