Project at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Polychloroprene is usually sold under the trade name Neoprene. It's especially resistant to oil. It was the first synthetic elastomer, or rubber to be a hit commercially. It was invented by Arnold Collins, while working under the same fellow who invented nylon, Wallace Carothers. Neoprene polychloroprene is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber with more than 75 years of proven performance in a broad industry spectrum.
  • The basic chemical composition of Neoprene synthetic rubber is polychloroprene. Neoprene liquid dispersions are aqueous, colloidal dispersions of polychloroprene or copolymers of chloroprene and other monomers such as methacrylic acid or 2,3 dichloro 1,3-butadiene. They are available in both anionic and non-ionic forms.
  • Chloroprene was produced by the older “acetylene process”. This process has the disadvantages of being very energy-intensive and having high investment costs. Polymerization of chloroprene produces polychloroprene. It is possible to polymerize chloroprene by anionic, cationic and Ziegler-Natta catalysis techniques.
  • Contact glues and adhesives developed from polychloroprene elastomers occupy an important place among all methods ever developed. The application of polychloroprene requires addition of metallic oxides (zinc oxides, in the presence of magnesium oxides if required). Different types of resins are used in polychloroprene glues and adhesives. The basic resins used in glues and polychloroprene adhesives are phenolic reactive resins
  • Adhesives based on Neoprene polychloroprene in both aqueous and solvent forms have a long, successful history for contact adhesives, lamination, foam bonding and pressure sensitive applications. Neoprene polychloroprene has been the industry workhorse for underhood, chassis and adhesives applications. Neoprene in applications such as CVJ boots, hose covers, air springs, power transmission belts and adhesives attests to the staying power of this durable elastomer as a viable engineering material for automotive systems.
  • Polychloroprene-based adhesives provide outstanding toughness, chemical resistance, weathering resistance, heat resistance, oil and chemical resistance, as well as very rapid bond strength development. In contact adhesive applications, they develop an “instant bond” which allows assembled components to be immediately processed without clamping or fixturing.
  • The U.S. shoe industry was the first major market penetrated by polychloroprene contact adhesives. Although this market has declined in the U.S. during the past 1-15 years, the shoe industry still represents a major consumer of polychloroprene adhesives on a worldwide basis. This resin classification market report on polychloroprene estimates 2003 demand with a historical perspective back to 2000 as well as forecasts through 2005 and 2010 within the U.S. Adhesives Industry.
  • Makers of neoprene fabric in Taiwan are taking steps to generate more overseas orders by releasing designs that have more applications, including for household and office items, fashion accessories and clothing. The move to expand neoprene's product base comes after Taiwan's export sales dropped 11 percent in the first nine months of 2005 compared with the same period of the previous year.
  • Makers of neoprene fabric in Taiwan offer mostly midrange and high-end models, but low-end designs are also produced. Midrange models are priced between $20 and $30 per sheet, while high-end versions are $30 to $50. Low-end designs go for $10 to $20. A Company offers neoprene for wetsuits and sportswear.
  • It is determined that revocation of the antidumping finding on polychloroprene rubber from Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the U.S. polychloroprene rubber industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. The conditions in the U.S. polychloroprene rubber (“PCR”) market have undergone significant changes. Most importantly, U.S. demand for PCR has declined.
