EPDM Rubber (a.k.a. Ethylene Propylene Diene Rubber) is an organic compound, in the (ter)polymer/elastomer class. It is derived from ethylene, propylene, and small amounts of a nonconjugated diene as third monomer. Having a completely saturated polymer backbone, this random elastomeric copolymer combines interesting features including excellent weathering stability and heat resistance, good insulating properties and good resistance to chemicals, moisture and steam. EPDM has excellent ozone resistance, in comparison with natural rubber and its synthetic substitutes, such as SBR (styrene–butadiene rubber), BR (butadiene rubber) and IR (isoprene rubber). These features make EPDM a versatile synthetic rubber, with several applications in the automotive industry, in the construction industry and as a plastic modifier.
