Are you searching for durable neoprene gaskets capable of holding up to the rigors of your operation? Does your application require that parts offer a little more resistance to degradation than is typical? Are you tired of continually replacing worn out, cracked gaskets that have succumbed to harsh conditions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Kent Rubber Supply’s neoprene gaskets are an ideal solution. As a material, neoprene offers better resistance, increased toughness, and characteristics that make it suited to harsh, unforgiving environments. In today’s post, we’re going to take a closer look at the benefits that neoprene has to offer.


When it comes to toughness, neoprene gaskets reign supreme. The material’s properties render it extremely resistant to chemicals, heat, and oils. When compared to standard rubber gaskets, you can expect neoprene gaskets to last longer, perform better, and be more cost-effective in the long run.

Weather resistance

If you need an outdoor material for heavy transportation, mass transit, or other application, neoprene is a time-tested solution. Both water and weather resistant, it remains flexible in a range of temperatures and resists the effects of sun, salt, snow, and more.


The most common cause of failure for gaskets is overstretching or twisting. Over time, this weakens the gasket and causes it to crack or snap. Neoprene offers enhanced resistance to twisting and flexing, making it a more reliable, more dependable, and more effective.
