EPDM is the abbreviated version of ethylene propylene diene monomer (M-class) rubber – a material with an extensive array of uses in various mechanical and industrial circles. As far as EPDM gaskets are concerned, they might not be the first type that spring to mind when bringing up the subject, but they are certainly some of the most widely used.
EPDM Gaskets- the facts
So for anyone under the impression that EPDM gaskets represent just another example to throw on the proverbial pile, here’s a look at just a few of the advantages that come with choosing ethylene propylene diene monomer (M-class) rubber products:
Tried and Tested – EPDM gaskets have in one form or another been used across various industries around the world over for several decades now. The material is one of the most extensively tested and developed on the face of the Earth today. Most commonly seen sealing windows and other glass panels, EPDM gaskets are literally everywhere!
Longevity – Having been in use for several decades, it has become abundantly clear that this is one material that has the potential to last an incredible amount of time without ever giving up its protecting properties. EPDM does not degrade nearly as fast as alternative materials and is largely corrosion resistant.
Temperature Stability – Another huge perk of EPDM gaskets is the way in which its amazing sealing properties are not affected by extremes of temperature. Whether it’s 40 below zero or baking in 150 degree heat, the integrity of the seal will not be compromised.
General Resistance – When held like for like with most other standard materials used for creating gaskets, EPDM is exceptionally resistant and does not give in to UV rays, age or general wear and tear.
