EPM, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Rubber)

  • EPM/EPDM has a temperature range of -50°C to +120°/150°C (-60°F to +250°/300°F), depending on the curing system.
  • It has a great acceptance in the sealing world because of its excellent resistance to heat, water and steam, alkali, mild acidic and oxygenated solvents, ozone, and sunlight.
  • EPM/EPDM compounds are not recommended for gasoline, petroleum oil and grease, and hydrocarbon environments.
  • Good resistance to brake fluid.
