EPDM, or ethylene-propylene-diene monomer, is a type of synthetic rubber.
EPDM gaskets are commonly used across all kinds of applications and industries. These vary from medical devices and water systems to automotive uses. With its strong combination of thermal and mechanical properties coupled with relative cost-effectiveness, you can also expect to see EPDM elastomer seals in a wide range of household applications, including door/window seals and in refrigerators.
EPDM rubber gaskets offer a variety of benefits when compared to other rubber gasket materials. They can withstand harsh environmental conditions and are designed to provide reliable, long-lasting sealing capabilities over a wide range of temperatures from -60° F to 300° F.
