What is Neoprene?
Neoprene is a synthetic material, known as polychloroprene, which was chemically created in 1930 by scientists working for the DuPont company in the USA. The reason it was created was because of the high demands for natural rubber, so this was designed to be a synthetic alternative.
Is neoprene waterproof?
The simple answer is yes, neoprene is waterproof. It’s also resistant to oil and heat. Because of the way in which wetsuits and neoprene clothing is stitched and glued, the seams are sealed in order to give it extra resistance to water.Blind stitching is a common method of stitching seams on neoprene clothing, where the seam is stitched inside out and the stitch doesn’t go all the way through, leaving no holes on the outside. Seams are often then glued or taped for added durability.
Is Neoprene safe?
Neoprene is mostly safe, as it’s usually in the manufacturing of neoprene that harmful toxins can be released, and when the material is burned it can also release dangerous hydrogen chloride into the air.
NOT RECOMMENDED if you are allergic to:
rubber latex. Synthetic latex materials include polyvinyl chloride (vinyl or PVC), nitrile rubber (acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymers), and polychloroprene known by its trade name, Neoprene™.
Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range.
CDC Recommends natural fabrics or the higher thread count of tightly-woven material to exclude from any airborne particles getting through! These are not medical grade and will not protect against COVID-19. However, homemade mask has been proven to be more effective than using nothing at all.
