EPDM rubber gaskets are manufactured from a synthetic elastomer and are commonly used in external applications due to the materials outstanding resistance to ageing, ozone and weathering. The gasket has an impermeable surface, provides good resistance to abrasion and is suitable for use with most alkalines, ketones and diluted acids.
EPDM is commonly used in medium range sealing applications and can be converted into manway or low pressure pipe seals. If you require an EPDM gasket for use with potable drinking water or with foodstuffs, WRAS / WRc approved or white food quality gaskets can be supplied.
At PAR, we utilise advanced CNC machinery and have the capability to manufacture gaskets to almost any size you require. We convert sheet material into standard flange, picture frame and dovetail gaskets and are able to fulfil both low and high volume requirements. For information on how to accurately measure your gasket, please see our guide on 'How to Measure a Gasket'.
