EPDM Rubber

Ethylene-propylene rubber & elastomers (Also called EPDM and EPM) continues to be one of the most widely used and fastest growing synthetic rubbers having both specialty and general purpose applications.  Versatility in polymer design and performance has resulted in a broad range of use in automotive weather stripping and seals, glass-run channel, radiator, garden and appliance hose, tubing, belts, electrical insulation, roofing, membrane, rubber mechanical goods, plastic impact modification and motor oil additive applications.  On the Other hand, it doesn’t do well with oils and petroleum-based products.  Its physical resilience (high tensile and tear properties) makes it good for moving or vibrating applications.

EPDM rubbers are valuable for their excellent resistance to heat, oxidation, ozone and weather aging due to their stable, saturated polymer backbone structure.  Properly pigmented black and non-black compound are color stable.  As a non-polar elastomers thy have good electrical resistivity, as well as polar solvents, such as water acids alkalis, phosphate, esters and many ketones and alcohols.

Durometers Range from 40 to 90

Armacell MONARCH & ENSOLITE Materials

Seal & Design is an authorized Armacell distributor and has the ability to fabricate Armacell MONARCH & ENSOLITE closed cell sponge into sheets on our electronically controlled splitting machine. From these sheets, a variety of gasket, sealing, and cushioning products are manufactured. Some of the more popular styles are Monarch 5021 & 5022 and also the Ensolite GIC, IR42, & IV3, plus the full line of Armacell sponge and elastomeric foam products.

We also can apply pressure sensitive adhesives to these closed cell materials, making them even more versatile. Controlled compression and recovery characteristics along with shock absorption attributes provide a highly flexible material with the ability to fill in voids in many application.
