EPDM Rubber Products & Applications

Share to:

EPDM rubber is a high density rubber primarily used for outdoor applications. It has dynamic and mechanical properties between natural rubber and synthetic rubber.

EPDM rubber is an extremely versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, from automotive products to HVAC parts. It also acts as a less expensive alternative to silicone and can last for long periods of time with proper use, saving you time and money.


  • Do not use EPDM rubber if continual contact with petroleum based products is required.

  • EPDM rubber is not recommended for usage in food applications or those that are exposed to aromatic hydrocarbons.

If this material is right for your environment and application, there are many benefits.

Benefits of EPDM

  • Resistance to UV exposure, ozone, aging, weathering, and many chemicals - great for outdoor applications

  • Stability in high and low temperatures - a general purpose EPDM material can be used in an environment where the temperature range is from -20F to +350F (-29C to 177C).

  • Low electrical conductivity

  • Resistance to steam and water

  • Used in the production of extruded rubber or molded rubber products

  • Properties allow it to be widely used and highly versatile, can be applied successfully in many situations

  • Used in the proper environment, the parts will work well and last long without breaking down, becoming brittle, etc. - saving you money on replacements

  • Less expensive than silicone, with similar properties (where heat below 250 degrees F is present)
