EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) closed cell sponge rubber material exhibits very good aging properties, compressibility, and shows an excellent resistance to ozone and oxidation, which explains its use in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. Atlantic Gasket Corporation, a Philadelphia-based gasket manufacturer, produces gaskets, seals, and other custom die-cut and waterjet cut parts in EPDM elastomers for customers that span across industry groups and international locations. Our closed cell EPDM sponge is available in soft and medium densities, and each offers a unique set of physical properties. Each grade is available as thin as 1/16" thick up to 2" thick. See if EPDM is the right gasket or seal material for your product by reading the example applications listed below.
|Example Gasket Application||Properties|
|Weatherproofing||Closed cell EPDM is used for many outdoor industrial gasketing applications for weatherproofing due to its resistance to aging, UV, ozone, and oxidation.|
|HVAC||This rubber sponge material proves beneficial in many HVAC systems and other flexible sealing applications, as it is resistant to compression set and atmospheric degradation.|
|Automotive||Our style RE41EPT is the material of choice for automotive taillight gaskets because of its excellent resistance to ozone and its unique sealing characteristics.|
|Electrical Enclosures||EPDM’s excellent resistance to ozone, UV and oxidation and its closed cell structure allows this material to be used as gasketing for many outdoor electrical enclosures.|
Atlantic Gasket offers EPDM grades in sheets 48" wide x 80" long, in rolls 48" wide x 50" long or we can custom die-cut or waterjet cut each grade to your exact requirements. Our EPDM gasket and sealing material meets the following specifications:
