Neoprene compound 5109 is used extensively by the NRL-USRD and industrial activities for underwater acoustical devices. It contains a proprietary process aid Technical Processing, Inc. TE-70. Recently, TE-70 has become very difficult for the NRL-USRD to obtain. This report outlines work by the NRL-USRD to eliminate use of proprietary materials in the formulation of compound 5109. Two approaches are presented 1 Eliminate the use of any process aid 2 Reformulate compound 5109 using alternative process aids. This report also describes the processability, physical characteristics, and bondability of several alternative formulations for Neoprene 5109.
