From what I've heard, Rubatex creates the bubbles in its neoprene by blowing gas through the compound as it cures. This creates evenly sized bubbles and the neoprene is more resistant to compression.
The bubbles in cheaper brands of neoprene are created by introducing a chemical agent that effervesces. This is a simpler solution but it creates bubbles of varying sizes and less even spacing.
This is what I've told. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
