EPDM is terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and a cure site monomer.
In general EPDM can withstand high temperatures up to 150°C, exhibit excellent ozone, oxidation and low temperature resistance. The amount of cure site monomer will determine the rate and state of cure. A fully saturated copolymer of ethylene and propylene are available for applications requiring superior heat (170°C) stability. EPDM’s are non-polar and so polymers exhibit excellent resistance to polar media such as water, alcohol, Ketones, etc…
Due to these properties EPDM is utilized within a wide variety of industries including industrial, construction and automotive. EPDM is also popular as an outdoor rubber as it’s resistant to weathering including acid and alkali resistance. As such, you’ll typically find it being used for things such as roofing, window and door seals or waterproofing sheets.
