Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Rubber
EPDM is a synthetic rubber compound that consists primarily of ethylene and propylene. The addition of a small amount of diene allows for the curing of rubber with sulfur, which changes the structure of the chemical structure to that of an unsaturated polymer. EPDM rubber is similar in its properties to Neoprene rubber.
Pierce-Roberts EPDM resists degradation from ozone, oxidants, high temperatures, and extreme weather conditions. Additionally, EPDM rubber has superior color stability and dielectric ability. Pierce-Roberts uses EPDM synthetic rubber compounds for both general and specialty outdoor applications, including steam hoses, high temperature-resistant seals, electrical insulation, roll covers, and more.
