Neoprene is a synthetic rubber with a wide variety of uses. As a fabric, neoprene often has a nylon or spandex backing on one or both sides to make it easier to put on and more comfortable against the skin. Since neoprene can be a difficult fabric to work with, most neoprene products are commercially manufactured using special sewing and seam-sealing techniques.
History: DuPont laboratories invented in neoprene in 1930, based on the work of chemistry professor Julius Arthur Nieuwland. The professor's research on developing synthetic rubber led DuPont scientists to create a polymerized version of chloroprene, or polychloroprene. DuPont originally named its new polychloroprene material DuPrene but changed the name to neoprene in 1936. A variety of engineers and inventors began using neoprene for wetsuits in the early 1950s.
Function: One of the best known uses for neoprene fabric is for wetsuits in scuba diving. Neoprene is also commonly used in wading boots for fishermen since it protects the skin from cold water. Laboratory workers may use neoprene gloves to protect their hands from acids, chemicals, solvents and oils. Kayakers and people who participate in cold-weather activities may also wear waterproof neoprene gloves, sometimes lined with fleece, to protect their hands from cold water, ice and snow. Many medical support braces, such as those for ankles, wrists and knees, also use neoprene
