is it waterproof?[edit]

The article doesn't say —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.108.87.11 (talk) 18:55, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

joint braces?[edit]

neoprene is also used in the creation of braces for our joints.


Neoprene Dangers[edit]

In the article it mentions how lead and various other chemicals and or elements are used in production that can make neoprene harmful; I'd like to know how to minimize or eliminate the threat of these substances (specifically the lead). Is there a cleaning method or some other solution? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.175.11.251 (talk) 15:10, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

crushed neoprene?[edit]

I am very curious what CRUSHED NEOPRENE is all about? Could anyone add some info about that? Thanks.

latex?[edit]

I'm curious about the relationship of neoprene to latex? Could someone respond? Thanks.

I don't think there is one -- latex is a natural rubber, neoprene a man-made rubber. --ukexpat 00:55, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

wouldn't it make sense to make a redirect page Neoprene rubber directing here?80.235.71.49 11:50, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Referencing an external link[edit]

The fact tag in this article could be referenced from the external link but I don't know how to do that or if it is even appropriate since that external link may qualify to be listed under References. Could someone comment on this.--Papajohnin (talk) 05:54, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Which of the fact tags are you talking about? The external link can be converted into a reference. It may be appropriate to do that. If you edit the first paragraph, you will see an example of how to cite a reference:

<ref name="dpe2003">{{cite web | title=Technical information — Neoprene | publisher=''Du Pont Performance Elastomers'' | year=2003 | month=Oct | url=http://www.dupontelastomers.com/literature/neoprene/585E7A59DA93810F6B1A7900D3712585.pdf}}</ref>

Under Applications. The statement about Neoprene having more fire resistance than exclusively hydrocarbon based rubbers can be referenced by the external link here not the .pdf. The article on fire doors list neoprene weatherstripping as a component. Neoprene face mask and gloves can be verified by just typing it in Google - many companies make those items. So basically I tried to move the link to the DuPont website in "External Links" to "References" (right below the .pdf that is currently there) but when I edit References all I see is {{refimprove}}.

When I try to add a reference in the format like yours it just says [1] and links to the .pdf instead of the DuPont website like I want it to. If you agree it should be done could you do it and show me what you did for future reference.--Papajohnin (talk) 05:55, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Done. See this diff. - Neparis (talk) 01:07, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

No legitimate reference for open cell neoprene[edit]

I can not find any legitimate reference to open cell neoprene. In diving suits, it seems open cell means nylon lined. Many will sell you "open cell neoprene" but none are reliable sources of information, and the manufacturers and suppliers to industry don't sell it. The source referenced "open cell vs closed cell" notes that open cell foams are available in polyurethane or melamine foams, but mentions neoprene only under closed cell foams. I believe this reference should be removed unless a legitimate reference can be found. JohnLeroy (talk) 18:02, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
