Ethylene propylene rubber is an elastomer which consists of ethylene and propylene monomers (ethylene propylene copolymer) and sometimes with an amount of a third (diene) monomer (ethylene propylene diene terpolymers). Ethylene propylene rubber has a temperature range of -50°C to +120°/150°C
EPDM is very reliable in the sealing world because of its excellent resistance to heat, water and steam, alkali, mild acidic and oxygenated solvents, ozone, and sunlight (UV). These compounds also withstand the effect of brake fluids and Skydrol and other phosphate ester-based hydraulic fluids. We do not recommend EPDM compounds for gasoline, petroleum oil and grease, and hydrocarbon environments.
