Durable and Cost-effective Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer to Remain in High Demand

Blog Description

Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a type of M-class synthetic rubber manufactured through the solution polymerization process. It is produced using propylene and ethylene in the presence of catalysts and dienes. EPDM rubbers display great resistance against abrasives, tearing, solvents, corrosion, aging, flowing, distortion, and high or low temperatures. Naturally, there are numerous reasons why EPDM rubbers continue to be in demand across industry verticals.

These are high density and yet flexible rubbers that are primarily used in the automotive industry to manufacture lightweight components such as belt drives, front and rear bumpers, inner tire tubes, rear lamp gaskets, door seals, braking systems, and interior panels. As a result of growing world population, the automotive industry is thriving and in turn propelling the demand for ethylene propylene diene monomer. 

Another prominent reason for the rising demand for EPDM is its increased use in other industries such as construction, electrical, and plastics. Various end-user products, such as appliance hoses and other insulation materials are also now made of this M-class synthetic rubber. The use of EPDM is evidently expanding too as a study by Transparency Market Research forecasts that the global market for ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is set to clock a CAGR of 5.4% between 2016 and 2024 with highly populated Asia Pacific countries such as China and India dominating both production and consumption. Here are three most significant reasons why EPDM remains perhaps the most useful synthetic rubber: 

EPDM is Durable and Cost Effective

Consumers demand products that offer value for money, and EPDM is almost exactly that. The most important property of EPDM is its robust resistance to cold as well as heat. These rubbers are able to sustain temperatures as low as -40 degree Fahrenheit and as high as 300 degree Fahrenheit. EPDM also does incredibly well when it comes to providing a barrier against ozone and UV, and even maintains its color for several years. Liquid EPDM rubber is perfect to coat roofs and prolong its life. 

EPDM is Easy to Work With

For instance, traditionally, roofing used to be a painful job with plenty of smoke and strong odor. The process of using hot bitumen was also a cause of danger for roof installers but EPDM offers a far safer and more practical installation process. This significantly reduces the cost of installation and required skill level of the labor. These rubbers are now supplied in rolls of 50 feet wide with which most roofs can be covered via very little effort and skill. 

EPDM is Environment-friendly too

Owing to its property of extended life-span and reusability, EPDM is considered as an environment friendly material with several advantages over the other types of roof membranes. As a result, governments across the globe encourage its usages.
