(Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a polymer that exhibits outstanding properties. It has exceptionally good weather aging resistance as well as resistance to water, chemicals, and ozone. EPDM also shows an excellent resistance to gas permeability and aging due to steam exposure. It is an excellent polymer to use in high temperature applications as it is heat resistant up to 350°F. Ethylene Propylene provides poor resistance to oil and solvents; however it is fairly good in its resistance to ketones and alcohols. In general, EPDM has dynamic and mechanical properties between natural rubber and SBR.
EPDM products can be used in the production of extruded rubberor molded rubber products and are used in many static and dynamic applications
