Chloroprene Rubber Sponge (neoprene) is a foamed rubber sponge with closed cell structures; its features as soft, waterproof, good hermetic seal, adhesion force, heat preservation and high strength, and good resistance to seawater, chemicals, and fire.
Chloroprene Rubber Sponge is a suitable material for watersport clothing such as surfing suit, diving suit, swimsuit, spearing suit and rash guard....etc. It brings better protection and comfort for the wetsuit wearers.

For different functional needs, the Chloroprene Rubber Sponge (neoprene) can be laminated with various functional fabrics, such as 4-way highly stretch fabric, abrasion resistance fabric, thermal-keeping fabric, etc. Or the laminate can be post-treated to make the materials have better water-repellent performance, lower the water absorption or better thermal insulation with Titanium treatment. The wetsuit with our hook and loop materials can make the suit with better functional performance and designs.

For triathlon suit wearer and swimmer, the smooth surface of Chloroprene Rubber Sponge can lower the friction under the water and provides UPF 50+ sun protection since Chloroprene rubber sponge is the closed-cell structure.
