Neoprene Polychloroprene (CR)

Neoprene AD-20 Chloroprene Polymer

Adhesive Grade - Chloroprene polymer designed for use in high-strength solution adhesives requiring rapid rates of strength development. More color-stable than Neoprene AC during storage. Primary use is in contact adhesives that require high initial and ultimate bond strength and ability to form bonds with minimum pressure after long open assembly periods. Neoprene AD can be dissolved without milling, or can be milled before solution (for rheology control), to cover a broad range of solution viscosity. It is soluble in solvents with various evaporation rates. Compounded adhesives can be stored in iron containers without the discoloration experienced with compounds based on Neoprene AC.

Neoprene NPR 2008 Chloroprene Polymer

Adhesive Grade - A high viscosity Neoprene polymer designed specifically to provide improved solution characteristics when compared to Neoprene WHV, and is primary used in combination with fast-crystallizing Neoprene grades to impart high solution viscosity. Solutions of Neoprene NPR 2008 have higher viscosities than solutions of Neoprene AD-20. Compounded solution adhesives based on Neoprene NPR 2008 provide more tack and a slower rate of bond strength development that adhesives based on Neoprene AD-20. Neoprene NPR 2008 can be dissolved without milling or can be milled before dissolution (for rheology control). Breakdown of Neoprene NPR 2008 by milling is more difficult than breakdown of Neoprene AD-20 under similar milling conditions.

Neoprene GNA-M1 Polychloroprene Polymer

General Purpose Grade - Neoprene GNA is a sulfur-modified polychloroprene stabilized with a thiuram disulfide and a staining antioxidant. It should not be used in applications where resistance to staining or discoloration of finishes is necessary. Neoprene GNA breaks down, or softens, under the mechanical shear imposed during mixing to produce smooth-processing compounds. It does not break down quite as rapidly as Neoprene GRT, so its compounds are less tacky and have somewhat less building tack than compounds of other G types.

Neoprene GNA-M2 Polychloroprene Polymer

General Purpose Grade - Neoprene GNA is a sulfur-modified polychloroprene stabilized with a thiuram disulfide and a staining antioxidant. It should not be used in applications where resistance to staining or discoloration of finishes is necessary. Neoprene GNA breaks down, or softens, under the mechanical shear imposed during mixing to produce smooth-processing compounds. It does not break down quite as rapidly as Neoprene GRT, so its compounds are less tacky and have somewhat less building tack than compounds of other G types.

Neoprene TW Chloroprene Polymer

General Purpose Grade - Neoprene TW and Neoprene TW-100 are nonstaining, general purpose polychloroprenes that contain gel for good processability. Neoprene TW and Neoprene TW-100 do not decrease in molecular weight during mixing and processing and cannot be chemically peptized. However, some reduction in viscosity may occur under high shear conditions. The degree of softening is greater for a higher molecular weight polymer such as Neoprene TW-100. Compounds of Neoprene TW and Neoprene TW-100 mix faster and cooler and have better mill release than compounds of Neoprene GNA or Neoprene GRT. Neoprene TW is an excellent polymer base for extruded products, providing high extrusion speed, low die swell, excellent definition, and very good collapse resistance. In calendered goods, it produces smooth sheeting with low nerve and shrinkage. Neoprene TW-100 offers these same benefits in a higher viscosity range suitable for more heavily loaded compounds.

Neoprene GW-M2 Polychloroprene Polymer

General Purpose Grade - Neoprene GW is a sulfur-modified polychloroprene stabilized with a thiuram disulfide. The crystallization rate of Neoprene GW is slightly faster than that of Neoprene GRT. Compounds of Neoprene GW cured with metal oxides alone have excellent processing safety, yet cure rapidly. Although not required, cure accelerators can be used and are advantageous for some applications.

Neoprene GRT-M1 Chloroprene Polymer

Crystallization-Resistant Grades - Neoprene GRT is a sulfur-modified, crystallization resistant chloroprene copolymer stabilized with a thiuram disulfide and a nonstaining antioxidant. It is slower in crystallizing than other G types. Neoprene GRT has the greatest resistance to crystallization of any of the G types. Thus, the raw polymer, and stocks and vulcanizates prepared from it, remain soft and flexible longer, particularly at low temperatures. Neoprene GRT rapidly breaks down, or softens, and becomes tacky under the mechanical shear imposed during mixing. In addition, it is slow to crystallize, so it remains tacky much longer than Neoprene GNA. Because of its excellent tack retention, Neoprene GRT is the preferred type of Neoprene for friction compounds and other applications requiring good building tack.

Neoprene WRT Chloroprene Polymer

Crystallization-Resistant Grade - DuPont™ Neoprene WRT and DuPont™ Neoprene WD are designed for use in finished products that must remain flexible for long periods at low temperatures. The excellent crystallization resistance of these types helps counteract the increase in rate of crystallization-induced stiffening that is caused by ester plasticizers. Therefore, higher levels of ester plasticizers can be tolerated for increased resistance to thermal stiffening.

The excellent crystallization resistance of these types helps counteract the increase in rate of crystallization-induced stiffening that is caused by ester plasticizers. Therefore, higher levels of ester plasticizers can be tolerated for increased resistance to thermal stiffening.

Neoprene WB Chloroprene Polymer

Specialty Grade - Neoprene WB is a nonstaining polychloroprene that contains a high percentage of gel polymer for superior processability. Neoprene; WB contains a high percentage of gel polymer, which gives it better processing characteristics than any other type of Neoprene. Compounds based on Neoprene WB are firm and have very low nerve. They are fast-extruding, yielding smooth extrudates with good collapse resistance, sharp die definition, and low die swell. They also calender well, yielding smooth sheets with low shrinkage.
