EPDM is an abbreviation of Ethyleen-Propyleen-Dieen-Monomeer, a synthetic composed rubber. The reason EPDM is often the preferred choice for outdoor applications derives from its material properties. EPDM rubber is extremely well fit to handle exposure to ozone and UV. Moreover, it is capable of handling acids and corrosive substances while being exposed to temperatures of -40°C up to +120°C. If properly chosen the material properties of EPDM don’t change severely, even when exposed to these extreme conditions. This explains the usage of EPDM seals, EPDM gaskets and EPDM rings in sealing solutions. Take notice of the fact that this rubber type is not suited for situations involving greases and oils lacking a silicone basis. NDS-Seals has extensive experience regarding the production process of EPDM, hence resulting in a capable and reliable supplier for your projects.
