EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
EPDM seals and gaskets are well known for ozone, weathering and aging resistance.
EPDM rubber also has excellent water and steam resistance, maintains its flexibility at low temperatures, features excellent resistance to alkalis, acids and oxygenated solvents, and is very color stable.
It is not recommended for resistance to oil, gasoline and hydrocarbon solvents. EPDM rubber seals and gaskets are found in a wide range of applications and are excellent for use outdoors.
These sealing solutions can be found in applications ranging from basic commodities such as hoses, belts and o-rings to complex, highly engineered seals for automotive, window, door, mass transit and more.
