neoprene

Synthetic rubber, developed in the USA in 1931 from the polymerization of chloroprene monomers, CH2CCl.CHCH2. The elastic properties of the polymer are enhanced by vulcanization. It is much more resistant to heat, light, oxidation, and petroleum than is ordinary rubber. It is used for making car tyres
