For outdoor and for harsh cold environments, we recommend EPDM cord. They are robust, tear resistant and have an exceptionally high resistance to ozone, UV and water however EPDM does have its weaknesses.
EPDM struggles and has limited resistance against oils, chemicals and grease. It also can’t withstand high temperatures.
We can supply a wide range of cord sizes ranging from 1mm in diameter up to 195mm in diameter since we manufacture in-house at our factory in Norwich, United Kingdom.
EPDM Cord can be used for applications like:
- Shock absorbing
- Outdoor buffers
- Dust seals
- Gaskets and seals
- Hatch Seal
- Suspension Joints
Features of our EPDM Cord include:
- High Ozone resistance
- High UV resistance
- High water resistance
- Impressive tensile strength
