This foam is made from a combination of EPDM and neoprene (CR) and therefore combines the properties of both foam rubber types. It is widely used in the automotive industry due to its oil-resistant, flame-retardant and weather-resistant properties.
This special foam rubber is made from a combination of EPDM and neoprene (CR). By combining the two, we have achieved a material that blends the qualities of both components in a balanced way. Neoprene is suitable for contact with oil, but EPDM/CR foam only for a short period of time. Similarly, neoprene has strong flame-retardant properties, but the blend has them to a lesser extent. EPDM/CR foam complies with the UL 94 HBF standard. While EPDM foam is suitable for outdoor applications in various weather conditions, the combined material is ideal for contact with ozone but not for contact with direct sunlight. Its closed cell structure makes it waterproof. EPDM/CR foam has been especially developed for certain applications that require a combination of the properties of EPDM and CR. EKI converts this material from blocks into sheets, and the sheets in turn into rolls, tapes and a variety of different shapes.
This material is mainly used in the automotive industry, which is the largest consumer of all existing rubber types. For this reason, it became necessary to develop more specialised types of rubber that are a little different in their properties than the standard range. EPDM/CR foam was therefore designed especially for the automotive industry. Although the material is less resistant than EPDM to direct contact with sunlight, this doesn’t matter so much as it is mainly used on vehicle interiors. However, the automotive industry is not the only one in which this type of foam rubber can be used. It could also have construction and industrial applications, wherever a material is needed that combines the properties of EPDM and neoprene.
