EPDM Rubber Seals and Gaskets

EPDM Rubber Seals and Gaskets

EPDM rubber seals and gaskets are widely used in various industries due to their excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, UV exposure, and a wide range of temperatures. Here’s an overview of some key points:

  1. Material Composition: EPDM rubber is a type of synthetic rubber composed primarily of ethylene and propylene, with a small amount of a diene monomer for cross-linking during vulcanization.
  2. Properties:
    • Excellent weather resistance: EPDM can withstand exposure to sunlight, ozone, and general weathering without significant degradation.
    • High temperature resistance: EPDM can handle temperatures ranging from -40°C to 120°C (-40°F to 248°F), with some formulations capable of even higher temperatures.
    • Good chemical resistance: EPDM is resistant to many chemicals and fluids, including acids, alkalis, and polar solvents.
    • Flexibility and elasticity: EPDM rubber remains flexible over a wide temperature range and has good resilience, making it suitable for dynamic sealing applications.
    • Electrical insulation: EPDM gaskets has good electrical insulation properties, making it suitable for use in electrical enclosures and cable insulation.
  3. Applications:
    • Automotive industry: EPDM seals and gaskets are commonly used in vehicle doors, windows, hoods, trunks, and various under-the-hood applications due to their weather resistance and durability.
    • Building and construction: EPDM seals and gaskets are used in doors, windows, roofing systems, and HVAC systems to provide weatherproofing and insulation.
    • Electrical industry: EPDM is used for cable insulation, grommets, and seals in electrical enclosures due to its electrical insulation properties.
    • Industrial machinery: EPDM seals and gaskets are used in pumps, valves, and other equipment for sealing against fluids and maintaining environmental integrity.
  4. Manufacturing: EPDM seals and gaskets can be manufactured using various methods, including compression molding, injection molding, extrusion, and die cutting, depending on the specific application requirements and the complexity of the part.
  5. Customization: EPDM seals and gaskets can be customized in terms of size, shape, hardness (durometer), and color to meet the specific needs of different applications.
