Santoprene rubber is a high performance elastomer in the thermoplastic rubber family. Santoprene is recyclable, making it more environmentally friendly. The composition of Santoprene rubber is highly cross linked rubber particles mixed throughout a continuous matrix of thermoplastic material. Santoprene rubber has an incredible fluid resistance when compared to other synthetic rubber materials such as neoprene or SBR.
