EPDM Sponge

EPDM Rubber sponge (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber) is a type of synthetic rubber – specifically an elastomer. It is used in many applications in a number of industries such as construction, glass and glazing, shipbuilding and the rail networks.

What types of EPDM sponge are there?

As a leading independent converter of cellular and solid rubber, we offer a range of EPDM including:

  • Closed cell EPDM – closed cell materials do not allow ingress of air, dust, moisture or water. In addition, this material has excellent ageing properties and therefore does not degrade through time. Similarly, it has excellent resistance to UV rays and, as a result, is widely used for outdoor applications.
  • Open cell EPDM (also known as semi-closed EPDM sponge) - open cell EPDM materials do allow for ingress of air, dust, moisture until they are compressed by 80% of their thickness. Following this, the product becomes water and air tight and closed cell. Subsequently, they recover much better after compression when compared with closed cell EPDM.

Here at Alanto, we have extensive knowledge in cellular foam solutions and can provide advice on their intended use. We supply closed cell EPDM and open cell EPDM sponge as rubber sheets and rolls. Our dedicated team of expert converters, are able to cut the sheets and rolls in line with your required dimensions. As part of our integrated service, all fabrication takes place on site and we are able to use this versatile material in a broad range of processes.

In addition to rubber sheets and rolls, EPDM can be supplied as:

  • Tapes
  • Coils
  • Seals
  • Gaskets
  • Coils

  • Seals
  • Sheets and rolls

With so many choices, it can often be difficult to decipher the function and application of each material. Head over to our Glossary for a comparative guide on different materials and their uses. Or, click here to find out how EPDM is utilised in industrial applications.
