EPDM foam is highly resistant to UV radiation and ozone, has a long lifespan, and is water-resistant. The material comes in both closed and semi-closed varieties. Because it is resistant to many external influences, it is widely used as a weatherstrip and sealing tape.

EPDM is a very weather-resistant raw material, making this foam rubber highly resistant to UV radiation and ozone. These properties ensure a long life span when the material is used outdoors. In addition to UV radiation and ozone, it is also resistant to water and other fluids. When touched, the material will not stain easily or age faster, as most hardnesses of EPDM foam have a closed-cell structure. A few very soft types have semi-closed cells. This soft, compressible material also has very good mechanical properties, which means that the material will return to its original shape following compression. EPDM is not flame retardant, so if you are looking for a material with flame retardant properties, we recommend neoprene foam instead. Despite it lacking flame-retardant properties, this material is well suited to use within a wide range of temperatures (from around -40°C to 120°C). EPDM foam is available in many different hardnesses and thicknesses, ranging from extremely soft to 50 Shore A. The very soft version is fully compressible, while the harder types are up to around 25% compressible. EKI provides EPDM foam in both self-adhesive and non-adhesive forms in the colours black, grey and white. Self-adhesive foam rubber is easy to install.
Thanks to its weather-resistant and water-repellent properties, this material is frequently used for making draught tape and draught strips for sealing gaps. It is extremely suitable for sealing objects and spaces against external influences. Examples include steel and aluminium windows, partitions, applications in the electrical industry, and for sound absorption in aircraft or vehicle bodywork. In addition, EPDM foam is suitable for use as weatherstrip for folding trailers and is often used in steel and other constructions.
