Neoprene with one Velcro side can form easy attachments to other Velcro surfaces. It is mostly used in the healthcare and sports sectors to make protective accessories. The advantage of the Velcro side is that it can be easily attached without the need for additional materials.
Neoprene with Velcro consists of a neoprene foam core with a Velcro layer on one side and a nylon layer on the other. The Velcro makes it easy to attach the material to items, for example around an arm, leg, tube or other object. The Velcro hooks attach to the loops, creating a secure attachment. The nylon layer provides comfort as well as making the material sturdier, easier to sew and stitch, and more durable. The raw material combines the good properties of different rubbers such as EPDM and NBR rubber. As a result, it has good resistance to UV and ozone, and is very resistant to fresh water and sea water. Neoprene has good mechanical properties and can stretch often. It also has reasonable flame-retardant properties (not in accordance with UL94). The material requires little maintenance and is smooth to the touch. It is produced in blocks and then peeled into sheets in a variety of thicknesses as desired. It is then covered with Velcro and nylon. We also cut the neoprene sheets into a range of shapes, such as rings, cubes and more. At EKI we can supply this material in black, but if you require a different colour, please contact us. We will examine the options for you.
Neoprene with a Velcro side is mainly used in the healthcare and sports sectors. Velcro is useful in those sectors because it enables the material to attach together without additional fasteners. Examples include knee straps, ankle straps, overshoes, belts and various other types of straps. It is widely used in rehabilitation, such as for covering splints. Neoprene with Velcro is also used in surfing, diving and swimming accessories such as mask straps, surfing shoes and various other items. The material is also used in equestrian sports, to make bell boots. The advantage of the Velcro side is that it enables the neoprene to be wrapped directly around the desired object without the need for any additional fastening materials.
