【Consumer-use product】For example, wetsuit, shoes, bag, sports protection accessories, swimwear, fitness suit…etc. Those are suitable to use Chloroprene Rubber sponge (CR), Chloroprene/ Styrene-butadiene rubber (CR/SBR) or Thermal plastic Elastomer (TPE).
◆ Water-proof and wind-proof: CR = CR/SBR = TPE (All of them are closed-cell structure.)
◆ Soft and Elastic: CR > CR/SBR > TPE
◆ Compression and recovery: CR > CR/SBR > TPE
◆ Light weight: TPE > CR = CR/SBR
◆ Color availability: TPE > CR = CR/SBR
◆ Eco-friendly: TPE > CR > CR/SBR
【Industrial-use product】For example, headlight gasket for automobile, shock absorption material for battery, butter material for machine, sound-insulation material for trail industry…ect. You may consider among Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers (EPDM), Chloroprene Rubber Sponge (CR), Chloroprene Rubber / Styrene butadiene rubber (CR/SBR) and Styrene butadiene rubber / Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers (SBR/EPDM).
◆ Physical strength: CR > CR/SBR > EPDM > SBR/EPDM
◆ Flame retardant：CR > CR/SBR > SBR/EPDM > EPDM
◆ Oil resistance：CR > CR/SBR > SBR/EPDM > EPDM
◆ Compression resistance：CR > CR/SBR > EPDM > SBR/EPDM
◆ Chemical resistance：EPDM > CR > SBR/EPDM > CR/SBR
◆ Weather resistance：EPDM > SBR/EPDM > CR > CR/SBR
