EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber offers excellent resistance to heat, weathering, and steam. This smooth elastomer has excellent electrical insulating properties and is resistant to heat, weather and steam.


Sheet RubberEPDM’s electrical insulation properties and water resistance make it a popular choice for cable jointing and other electrical applications. It is also commonly used in automotive vehicle windows, refrigerators, tubes and hoses. Other common applications include:

  • Automotive weather stripping
  • Belts
  • Glass-run channels
  • Washers
