EPDM or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer has an excellent operating temperature range of -45°C to + 120°C.It is highly recommended for out-door uses as it extremely resistant to oxidation, U.V. Rays and Ozone. However, EPDM does not have good oil resistance or adhesion properties. It is resistant to many chemicals and solvents and shows good resistance to many corrosive chemicals. It is also used for roofing sheets and weather strips.
EPDM rubber is a synthetic elastomer which is formally known as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. EPDM products are offered in a few variations. Their common feature though is that they are generally very good at resisting the degrading effects of weathering, ozone, and UV ray exposure. EPDM sheet rubber is highly recommended as a type of outdoor rubber for applications where there is significant environmental exposure. EPDM rubber is also highly resistant to extreme high and low temperatures making it the ideal rubber material for insulating heat and electricity.
