The Custom EPDM Molding Experts
Molded EPDM Rubber
Molded EPDM rubber is ideal for outdoor applications because of its ability to resist harsh weather conditions. Also recommended for its ability to stabilize color and resist heat. EPDM is an economical choice because it offers the advantages of neoprene, at a lower cost. EPDM molding is widely used in the automotive industry because it is ozone resistant, temperature resistant and has an attractive appearance.
We do not recommend the use of EPDM for applications that involve petroleum derivatives. Mineral oils and solvents can cause an adverse reaction when used with EPDM. EPDM is also not recommended as an electrical insulator.
What is EPDM Rubber?
EPDM rubber or ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber is synthetic rubber with high density. It is an ideal roofing material as well as many other outdoor, HVAC, automotive and industrial applications. EPDM also exhibits mechanical properties found in both natural rubber and synthetic rubber. Furthermore, EPDM materials are far less costly and more durable than silicone materials. As a result, EPDM products last for much longer periods of time, saving you money on replacements.
EPDM is a uniquely versatile, general purpose rubber. However, it should not be used in applications involving contact with petroleum products, food-based applications or applications with continuous exposure to aromatic hydrocarbons.
