ASG manufactures a wide range of products from Neoprene sponge, taking advantage of the fact that it shares many qualities with EPDM and Natural sponge. These properties include the fact that it is durable and highly resistant to wearing by abrasion. When this is combined with the chemical inertness of Neoprene sponge it creates the ideal material for applications such as gaskets used to protect against moisture and dust.
The versatility of Neoprene rests on the fact that, while only moderately resistant to petrol and similar hydrocarbons, it is highly resistant to oil and other chemicals. At the same time it can supplied in a range of thicknesses and as a fire retardant substance and, depending on the grade utilised, can withstand temperatures ranging from -40˚C to 110˚C.
Sometimes known as Chloroprene, Neoprene sponge has a closed cell structure and is extremely flexible.
This makes it the ideal substance to provide a seal against gases, liquids and particles.
