The manufacturer of the neoprene material you are looking for will be in their catalog or at least on their web site. They will give the strengths in psf and sometimes pcf. They will also have specifications for you to request.

Don; This is a material that is used for structural conditions. It can be used under concrete slabs to distribute floor dead and live loads and used where floor elevations are not the same in small areas. It is only used where soil support can't be used . It is very rarely used for foundation such as replacing a concrete footing with neoprene for a foundation footing. It can replace gravel that is placed under a concrete slab together with Visqueen P.S. It is very strong by the way.
