EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber), a type of synthetic rubber, is an elastomer characterized by a wide range of applications. Sunlight and weather elements (rain, wind, humidity etc.) can drasticallly reduce the life span of most general purpose elastomers like Silicone and Neoprene.
The natural ability of EPDM Rubber to withstand ambient harsh weather, water and temperature extremes makes it an outstanding choice for use in Architectural Profiles, Weather Seals, Windshield Rubber, Weather Strips, Door Rubber and other exterior applications. EPDM is non-hardening under UV- light.
EPDM is an excellent source for gaskets or gasket sealing against atmospheric conditions such as sunlight, ozone, wind and rain. EPDM rubber can withstand temperatures ranging from -50°C to 150°C.
EPDM gaskets are the most tested and widely used sealing technique.
Reliable sealing of media over a long period of time.
Outstanding sealing properties in extreme weather conditions and excellent temperature stability.
If compared to gaskets made from other materials, EPDM gaskets are extremely resistant to wear, ageing, weather influences, Ozone and UV-light.
EPDM gaskets are colour-stable and leave no stains on window frames.
