EPDM

General Guidelines

Common Name: EPDM, EPT, EP Rubber

Chemical Name: Ethylene-Propylene Diene Monomer

Properties: Ozone, Oxidation, Abrasion, chemical, and sunlight/aging resistance. Poor resistance to petroleum-based fluids, Kerosene, Hydrocarbons, and Solvents.

Size Sheet Range: Width: .75” -60” Thickness: .015” – 1.00” Length: Min 60’ Ft

Uses: Weather-Stripping, Outdoor applications, Conveyor Belting, Electrical applications

Note – Property values are based on cured elastomer exposures
