Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a synthetic rubber compound that consists primarily of ethylene and propylene. The addition of a small amount of diene allows for the curing of rubber with sulphur, which changes the structure of the chemical structure to that of an unsaturated polymer. EPDM rubber is similar in its properties to Neoprene rubber.
Aquaseal Rubber uses EPDM synthetic rubber compounds for both general and specialty outdoor applications, including steam hoses, high temperature-resistant seals, electrical insulation, roll covers, and more. The temperature range of this material is between -30° to + 130°C (150°C intermittents).
Benefits of EPDM
- Resistant to ozone degradation
- Resistant to oxidants, high temperatures and extreme weather conditions
- Superior colour stability and dielectric ability
