EPDM rubber is best known for its outstanding resistance to elemental exposure to ozone, sun and oxygen. Additionally, EPDM is highly resistant to acids, akali and ketones and has a great resistance to heat and aging. The overall operating temperature that EPDM functions in varies in a range of -67°F to 302°F (-55°C to 150°C). EPDM is often used in electrical insulation applications due to its high resistances.
All EPDM grades are available as thin as .016″ thick up to .250″ thick. We offer EPDM grades in continuous rolls of 36″, 48″, or 54″ wide or we can CNC cut and waterjet cut each grade to your exact requirements. All EPDM grades come in a measure of hardness (durometer) as soft as 40 durometer and as hard as 80 durometer.
EPDM ECONOMY GRADE
Commercial Grade EPDM provides good resistance to chemicals, weathering, ozone, and UV exposure making it suitable in applications for air, hot and cold water, saturated steam, and outdoor service.
EPDM PEROXIDE CURED
Peroxide Cure Grade EPDM exhibits excellent resistance to heat, aging, and compression set from -60°F to +300°F (-51°C to +149°C) and is ideal for applications involving food, water, and steam.
EPDM HIGH GRADE
High Grade EPDM is comprised of 100% EPDM and offers the same resistance as the commercial grade but has higher physical properties, which make it an excellent material for applications that require a low compression set.
Using computer numeric controlled (CNC) technology, Gasket Supply is able to manufacture custom EPDM rubber gaskets can be cut into any configuration needed. Upon request, EPDM rubber gaskets can be custom manufactured with an acrylic adhesive backing.
