Closed cell EPDM (Ethylene, Propylene, Diene, Monomer) sponge is used generally for
gaskets, sealing and in electrical engineering.
This high-performance synthetic rubber sponge excels in demanding environmental conditions.
It exhibits both high and low temperature performance (-50° to 110°C) and exceptional
UV and ozone resistance.
These characteristics make it ideally suited for outdoor, construction and automotive
Available in sheets, blocks, rolls or as finished components, EPDM sponge rubber
comes in a range of densities.
• Good electrical resistivity
• Resistant to polar solvents
• Outstanding low temperature flexibility
•Good compression set resistance
Neoprene is a versatile synthetic rubber, similar to natural rubber in terms of tensile
strength, resilience and abrasion resistance, but is more able to withstand direct
sunlight, has better weathering resistance and a wider working temperature range
(-20° to +110°C).
Neoprene sponges have good resistance to oils, while resistance to petrol & other
hydrocarbons is moderate. Resistance to water is not as good as natural rubber.
Available in sheets, blocks, rolls or as finished components, Neoprene sponge rubber
comes in a range of densities and hardness, with or without flame retardant properties.
• Resists degradation from sun, ozone and weather
• Resists oils and many chemicals
• Wide working temperature range
• Displays outstanding durability
• Resistant to damage caused by flexing and twisting
The most common type of plastic foam, available in a wide selection of colours, densities
PE foam can be blown chemically or physically expanded by the introduction of a gas
such as Nitrogen.
These foams can be crosslinked, a process that enhances durability and enables them
to be thermoformed.
