EPDM Gasket Material
EPDM is a black plate finish sheet with superior resistance to weathering, ozone and UV exposure. EPDM also
provides excellent chemical resistance*, and good electrical properties. EPDM resists animal and vegetable oils,
steam, water and oxygenated solvents. This material meets ASTM D-2000-2BA specifications.
Excellent resistance to UV rays and ozone. Good resistance to Anti-freeze, Synthetic
Detergents, Acetone, Boric acid, Ethanol, Formaldehyde, Mercury, Potassium Sulfate,
Silver Nitrate, Steam (up to 212 Fahrenheit), Saccharin.
compression. Gasket material saves money by allowing less precise mating surfaces on machine parts
which can use gasket material to fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from
sheet gasket materials, such as gasket paper (beater addition), Non-asbestos, Rubber, EPDM, Nitrile,
Buna, Neoprene, Flexible Graphite, Grafoil, Aflas, Kalrez, Viton, Silicone, Metal, Mica, Felt or a plastic
polymer such as Teflon® (PTFE), Peek, Urethane, or Ethylene Propylene (EP). In the past, the gasket
material selected for specific applications may contain have contained asbestos.
