is the trade name for a family of synthetic rubbers based on polychloroprene
. It is used in a wide variety of environments, such as in wetsuits, for electrical insulation
fan belts; and due to its chemical inertness, in industrial applications such as gaskets, hoses, and corrosion-resistant coatings. It can also be used as a base for adhesives.
