Neoprene, CR neoprene, limestone neoprene, or polychloroprene is a type of synthetic rubber made by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene is resistant against most chemicals and can be used in large range of temperatures while it remains flexible. Neoprene is the best material to be used for insulation, especially insulation against temperature differences. This is why neoprene is used to produce wetsuits. It can be fit tight around the body, stay flexible and protect you from hypothermia while surfing in cold waters. The main ingredient of neoprene is the element carbon (C), which can be derived from oil, more environmentally friendly limestone or other sources with a high carbon content.
