Introduction to EPDM rubber

Date:2018-01-04

 

EPDM rubber is a synthetic elastomer formally known as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer.

It offered in a few of variations.

Their common feature though is that they are generally very good at resisting the degrading effects of weathering, ozone, and UV ray exposure.

This material is highly recommended as a type of outdoor rubber for applications where there is significant environmental exposure.

It performs superbly in general exterior applications.

Its chemical composition allows it to resist the cracking and discoloration that comes from exposure to UV rays and ozone.

Cracking is particularly dangerous because it can affect the overall integrity and productivity of equipment or products.

A good example of such an application for EPDM products would be in the form of window sealing strips in vehicles.

These strips made from EPDM sheets are necessary for protecting the window glass and the vehicle, but they face a lot of exposure to the elements.

However, since they are made of EPDM rubber, they will last for a long period of time without suffering from any degradation. But ozone and UV rays are not the only challenges that this elastomer can fight.
