Description: Style AG40NEHG is a 40 durometer high-grade neoprene designed for use in gasketing applications that require a solid neoprene material with high tensile strength. Style AG40NEHG offers good resistance to oil and petroleum base solvents and excellent resistance to dilute acids. With a service temperature of -30°F to +200°F, 40 durometer high-grade neoprene provides resilience in both cold and hot temperatures. Known by the chemical name chloroprene, Style AG40NEHG is made from 100% neoprene and is suited for rigorous applications while giving users a gasketing material with good weathering and ozone resistance. 40 durometer high-grade neoprene is formulated to meet the ASTM D2000 M1BC 407 specification.
Atlantic Gasket’s high-grade neoprene is available in a wide range of durometers, ranging from as soft as 30 Durometer (AG30NEHG) to as hard as 90 Durometer (AG90NEHG) with standard durometers in between. Style AG40NEHG is available in the color black and can be manufactured in a wide range of standard thicknesses, ranging from as thin a 1/64" to as thick as 1/4", with custom thicknesses available upon request. 40 durometer high-grade neoprene has a smooth finish and can be converted into rolls ranging from as narrow as 1/4 wide up to 48” in width. Atlantic Gasket has the ability to fabricate 40 durometer high-grade neoprene by die-cutting or waterjet cutting to meet your design and production requirements.
