Chloroprene Rubber (CR), also known as chlorobutadiene rubber, is an important diene-based elastomer. The commercial grades are mostly trans-1,4-polychloroprene produced by free-radical emulsion polymerization of 2-chloro-1,3-butadiene. The chlorine in the polymer reduces the reactivity to many oxidizing agents. Its typical working temperature range is between -35°C and +120°C.

What are the benefits and the features of Chloroprene Rubber?

  • Good resistance to ozone cracking
