EDPM Rubber

Click below for pertinent facts and informational links for the materials that our corner guards are made from.

EDPM, which is short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer rubber, is a synthetic rubber compound. It has a strong resistance to hot and cold temperatures, so it is often used in roofing as a waterproofing sealant, and for other outdoor applications such as garage door seals and hoses. EPDM is also used in the automotive industry as a sealant because it is insulating and noise-reducing. It is not resistant against petroleum-based oils, mineral oils, and some other lubricants.
