Gym Rubber is a high density closed-cell foam with a medium feel. Its durability and flexibility makes it great for exercise matting, kneeling cushions, and camping pads, all while remaining comfortably soft to the touch. It can help dampen vibrations and noise in automotive and industrial applications as well. Very easy to cut, it is also moisture resistant and practical for outdoor, boating, and marine applications. Gym Rubber has excellent resistance to oil and fuel. Its technical name is Polyvinyl Chloride / Nitrile Butadiene Rubber / Neoprene (Chlorinated Rubber) (PVC/NBR/CR), and its offical name is Armacell's Ensolite IG2.
