Maximum Seal Temperature: +120°C
Other Titles: Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a long-lasting synthetic rubber which is suitable for hot water, steam, alcohols, coolants, acids and bases. It is not resistant to mineral oils, greases or fuels. EPDM seals are used for flexibility, good insulation properties and the general temperature range of -20°C and +120°C.
The Metal Company use black EPDM rubber for standard seals on stainless steel and carbon steel Press-Fit fittings, standard seals for BSP threaded Mac Unions and standard seals for Tri Clover unions. Green EPDM Rubber is used as chemical-resistant seals for RJT stepped seals. EPDM is used for a range of valve seals including Mini Ball Valves, Sanitary Non-Return Valves, E Series Butterfly Valves, Sanitary Ball Valves and Inline Non-Return Valves.
