Polyisoprenes, natural rubber, and synthetic rubber are noted for outstanding resilience, resistance to tear and abrasion, excellent elasticity, and flex fatigue resistance. Polyisoprenes also have excellent tensile strength characteristics and can operate in low-temperature environments. Polyisoprenes are not recommended for environments that contain high heat, ozone, sunlight, petroleum, or hydrocarbon.
The purity of synthetic polyisoprene provides more consistent dynamic properties with better weather resistance. Synthetic polyisoprene's lack of ”tree organics” also gives a relatively odorless rubber.
