Neoprene Rubber Parts

Share to:

Neoprene Rubber, also known as neoprene polychloroprene, is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber with more than 75 years of proven performance. Timco Rubber specializes providing neoprene rubber manufactured for industrial materials and parts. As a multipurpose elastomer, neoprene rubber can be used to fit a wide variety of consumer products thanks to benefits like outstanding toughness and various resistances.

In the automotive world, neoprene is used for many under-the-hood and underbody parts that require a reasonably priced, mid-performance polymer with a good all-around balance of performance properties. Our manufactured neoprene rubber parts and materials can also be used for several other industries, including mass transit, wire and cable, and construction.

While you can find neoprene materials to fit almost any consumer product that requires rubber, we specialize in industrial neoprene materials and applications.

Custom compounding for specific applications is also available.

Some typical applications and industries we provide neoprene products for include:

Mass Transit Industry

Neoprene meets the stringent Smoke-Flame-Toxicity requirements by the mass transit industry.

The compounds are certified to the following:

  • ASTM E162 (Surface Flammability)

  • SMP800C (Toxic Gas Generation)

  • ASTM C1166 (Flame Propagation)

Gasketing material is used for

  • Window seals with a locking strip (window and door seal extrusions)

  • Door and sensitive door seals

Street sweeper. Neoprene/EPDM rubber blend of medium density sponge rubber offers flexibility, light weight and compressibility in a seal assembly. Call Timco Rubber about custom rubber products.

Automotive Industry

Some of the typical neoprene rubber products you'll find when you look under the hood and throughout the chassis include:

  • Neoprene Hose Covers

  • CVJ boots

  • Power transmission belts

  • Vibration mounts

  • Shock absorber seals

  • Breaking and steering system components

Construction Industry

Neoprene can be compounded for specific properties such as low temperature and compression set resistance which makes it a great material for construction applications.

Neoprene's excellent weathering performance and ozone resistance, as well as its high tensile strength and low compression set, make it a very attractive synthetic rubber for these outdoor applications.

Neoprene seals can be used in a variety of construction jobs including:

  • Neoprene window seals

  • Custom window gaskets

  • Highway and bridge seals

  • Bridge bearing pads

  • Neoprene washers

  • Bridge stay-cable anchor components

  • Deviator pads

  • Neoprene O Ring

  • Elevator astragals


Neoprene is a multipurpose elastomer due to its balance of inherent properties. It was originally used as an oil-resistant replacement for natural rubber.

The benefits and advantages of using neoprene are its

  • Outstanding physical toughness

  • Resistance to heat and hydrocarbon oils

  • Resistance to the degradation effects of sun, ozone and weather

  • Wider short and long-term operating temperature range than other general-purpose hydrocarbon elastomers

  • Better flame retardant/self-extinguishing characteristics than exclusively hydrocarbon-based elastomers

  • Outstanding resistance to damage caused by twisting and flexing

  • Compoundability: Neoprene's polymer structure can be modified to create a material compound with a wide range of chemical and physical properties

Given neoprene's excellent balance of properties, it remains a material of choice for many automotive and mass transit applications.
