Neoprene foam is the end result of the neoprene production process. Polychloroprene rubber chips are heated up, colored black and mixed with a foaming agent. This makes the liquid neoprene foam up and expand into a mould. After the foaming process, it is sliced in different thicknesses neoprene sheets to make up different millimeters thick wetsuit panels. Neoprene foam can be heat treated to turn into single lined neoprene, or it can be lined with a jersey on both sides as double lined neoprene. Different grades of foam have different capabilities and characteristics such as differences in stretch or elongation, better or worse resistance to UV rays or ozone, different impact or compression strength etc. Usually, the more flexible and softer the foam, the more high-end it is.
