EPDM O-Rings FDA 70 Durometer Black
EPDM O-Rings (EPR, EPM) Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer FDA Compliant
Ethylene-Propylene / EPDM O-Rings: Ethylene propylene rubber is an elastomer prepared from ethylene and propylene monomers (ethylene propylene copolymer). Our stock O-Ring compoundare made with an amount of a third (diene) monomer (ethylene propylene diene terpolymers). Ethylenepropylene-diene rubber (EPDM) produced using a third monomer and is particularly useful when sealing phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids and in brake systems that use fluids having a glycol base. EPDM has outstanding resistance to heat, water and steam, alkali, mild acidic and oxygenated solvents, ozone, and sunlight; but it is not recommended for gasoline, petroleum oil and grease, and hydrocarbon environments. This popular rubber compound is usually the first choice for low torque drive belt applications.
Applications: Cold and Hot Water, Steam up to 300°F (149°C), Various Water / Municipalities Applications, Household Appliances, Glycol based brake fluids up to 300°F (149°C), Many organic and inorganic acid, Cleaning agents, soda alkali, potassium alkali, Phosphate-ester based hydraulic fluids (HFD-R), Silicone Oil, Silicone Grease, Many polar solvents (alcohols, ketones, esters), Ozone resistant, aging resistant, weather resistant, Outdoor Applications and Electrical Insulators..
Avoid: Mineral oil products (oils, greases and fuels), Solvents, Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Lubricating Oils, Petroleum Base Gasoline
