EPDM Rubber | EPDM O-Rings | Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer

EPDM ETHYLENE PROPYLENE       ASTM D 2000, SAE J200 Type / Class: AA, BA, CA, DA

General Characteristics

EPM is a copolymer of ethylene and propylene. Ethylenepropylene-diene rubber (EPDM) is produced using a third monomer and is particularly useful when sealing phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids and in brake systems that use fluids having a glycol base.

AKAs: EPDM, EPR, EPM

Temperature Properties

Heat Heat Resistance Up to 300°F (149°C) (max. 400°F (204°C) in water and/or steam).
Cold Cold Flexibility Down to approximately -70°F (–57°C).
