Black 60 Durometer EPDM Rubber Sheet


EPDM rubber is a synthetic elastomer formally known as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. EPDM products are offered in a few of variations. Their common feature though is that they are generally very good at resisting the degrading effects of weathering, ozone, and UV ray exposure. EPDM material is highly recommended as a type of outdoor rubber for applications where there is significant environmental exposure.

EPDM rubber performs superbly in general exterior applications. Its chemical composition allows it to resist the cracking and discoloration that comes from exposure to UV rays and ozone. Cracking is particularly dangerous because it can affect the overall integrity and productivity of equipment or products. A good example of such an application for EPDM products would be in the form of window sealing strips in vehicles. These strips made from EPDM sheets are necessary for protecting the window glass and the vehicle, but they face a lot of exposure to the elements. However, since they are made of EPDM rubber, they will last for a long period of time without suffering from any degradation. But ozone and UV rays are not the only challenges that this elastomer can fight.


Product Description and Specifications

"EPDM" sheet rubber is a versatile blended sheet composed of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer and Styrene Butadiene Rubber. It achieves an ideal balance to create an all-purpose, weather resistant rubber. For this reason, EPDM material is an excellent medium for outdoor uses. Furthermore, other benefits include great pliability and elasticity. It is easy to see that EPDM rubber is the premier outdoor rubber!

Excellent Chemical and Weather Resistance: The special properties of EPDM sheet rubber allow it to withstand chemicals in addition to weather-related hazards such as UV rays and ozone. As a weather resistant rubber, this EPDM sheet rubber is commonly used in industrial applications and machinery that are exposed to the elements. Damage from rainstorms, pollution, and the sun will occur at a slower rate compared to a fully exposed EPDM rubber when compared to other elastomers like SBR, Nitrile or Neoprene.

Excellent Industrial Sheet Rubber: EPDM rubber has adequate elastic and pliable qualities. The material has a durometer of Shore 55-65A but on average, has a Shore 60A measurement. A Shore A scale measures the hardness of the rubber. For example, a soft pencil eraser has a durometer of Shore 20A. Although higher than an eraser, the durometer of EPDM still maintains a good amount of flexibility for all of your necessary projects. In addition, EPDM rubber has a minimum elongation of 300%.

Popular Gauges: Rubber-Cal understands that some gauges are in higher demand than others. Therefore, the most popular gauges can usually be found in stock, ready for customers. This includes a range of eight different gauges to choose from. Custom thickness and widths are available upon request, though non-standard sizes will have large minimum orders. A Rubber-Cal representative can assist you in exploring customization options. With so many choices, you’re bound to find the perfect size of EPDM material.
