POLYMERS

Beneficial properties of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) and Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) are outstanding resistance to heat, ozone and weather. They show excellent resistance to hot and cold water, glycol, steam and polar chemicals like ketones and excellent electrical insulating properties.

EPDM and EPR show satisfactory compatibility with fireproof hydraulic fluids and alkalis.

*EPDM rubber is used in vibration dampening components, seals, glass-run channels, radiators, garden and appliance hoses, tubing, automotive and appliance seals, belts, electrical insulation. It is also used for roofing membranes, geomembranes, rubber mechanical goods and many other applications.
