EPDM rubber compounds were developed to find a rubber material that had better chemical, heat, ozone, UV light and weather resistant characteristics. EPDM is a synthetic rubber compound that can be manipulated to improve its positive characteristics of superior chemical resistance, release properties, and ozone tolerance. It is a composite rubber that can be specifically formulated to be used in flexographic printing, UV ink, coating, laser engraving, or high heat applications.
EPDM formulations are often blended with variations of several compounds including Teflon and Silicone to enhance certain desired characteristics.
