We commonly get questions asking what vinyls can adhere to neoprene. Now you may be asking, what is neoprene? Neoprene sometimes appears to be like a foam, however the material and texture differs in comparison to a foam. Neoprene is actually a kind of synthetic rubber that maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. A very common product made from neoprene is a can koozie!

In this blog, we grabbed 10 products off our shelves and put them to the test in adhering them to neoprene can koozies. In fact, all 10 products adhered very well! We provide you with both the recommended application instructions for pressing each vinyl onto a garment (as on our website), and the application instructions in which we found worked well when adhering to neoprene.

**Note that our neoprene application instructions all include shorter pressing times (you may need to add a few seconds with some vinyls). You can get away with this since it is very unlikely that neoprene products (such as a can koozie) will be going through a wash cycle. You simply need just enough temperature and time for the vinyl to tack down.**
