EPDM Rubber

EPDM rubber, a polymer composed of ethylene propylene, diene monomer, is the premier weather resistant synthetic elastomer. EPDM is also produced by select major polymer manufacturers, and may be referred to as their designated trade names, such as: Dutral®, Nordel® and Vistalon®.

EPDM rubber is especially UV and ozone resistant to ozone and provides excellent low temperature characteristics. EPDM rubber is resistant to a wide range of fluids including water, ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) and offers good resistance to most water-based chemicals and vegetable-based hydraulic fluids. EPDM is also resistant to many mild acids, liquid fertilizers and synthetic brake fluids.

EPDM  is not recommended for applications that include contact with hydrocarbon based fuels, synthetic lubricants or mineral oils and should not be used with ester based lubricants and fluids.

This premier polymer is widely used in a variety of industries. Automotive applications of EPDM rubber include under-the-hood, cabin pressure equalizing assemblies, interior trim and striker plate blinds. BRP manufactures a unique high-quality finish that provides a flat, non-reflective finish for gap hiders and similar applications. Many transportation applications require compounded EPDM for contact and migration stain resistance.

Construction and roofing industries use EPDM with mastic adhesive for roofing seams, extruded EPDM is used for windows and weather-strips for truck bodies and hangar doors. Proper compounding of EPDM rubber also exhibits excellent electrical insulation properties.

Please review your chemical resistance for you own evaluation.
