Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a type of synthetic rubber produced from a terpolymer of Ethylene, Propylene and a Diene Monomer (EPDM). The ethylene content is around 45% to 85%. The higher the ethylene content, the higher the loading possibilities of the polymer, better mixing, and extrusion. The dienes, typically comprising from 2.5% to 15% by weight of the composition, serve as cross-links when vulcanised with sulphur and resin.

What are the benefits and the features?

  • Good resistance to heat
