EPDM.

What is it?

EPDM rubber is based on ethylene and propylene. We add a small amount of diene to these compounds so we can cure the rubber with sulphur. This changes their chemical structure to that of an unsaturated polymer, resulting in EPDM.

What is EPDM used for?

A common use is in vehicles, door seals, window seals, trunk seals, and sometimes hood seals. This synthetic rubber membrane has also been used for flat roofs because of its durability and low maintenance costs.
