Ethylene propylene diene rubber, known by its abbreviation EPDM, is a sulfur-vulcanized, permanently elastic synthetic rubber. The elastomer features resistance to weather and ozone, as well as high resistance to water and steam, acids, alkaline solutions, glycols and brake fluids. Notable is also its thermal continuous-load capability in the temperature range between -40 C and +130 C, for a short time even up to +150°C. Moreover, EPDM has outstanding electrical insulating properties and is absolutely nontoxic and unplasticized.
Reichelt Chemietechnik offers black colored EPDM plates with material thicknesses between 1 and 6 mm. As versatile semi-finished products, they are particularly suited for the creation of areal covers and sealings in the production of laboratory equipment and in chemical plant construction, as well as in building and construction industry for sustainable sealings of building profiles against moisture and as frost-resistant pool linings. EPDM plates, which are available in fixed dimensions, can be connected to each other without any problems by means of contact adhesives or seam splice tapes.
