EPDM Rubber Sheeting - WRAS WRC Approved   

WRAS / WRc approved EPDM rubber sheeting is suitable for contact with wholesome water up to +23°C and is commonly used in applications involving water for human consumption. The material offers excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, ageing and chemicals and adheres to BS 6920-1:2000 and BS 6920-1:2014.

WRAS / WRc EPDM sheet is commonly used by water authorities as a lining in potable water applications or as gaskets in external environments due to the elastomers impervious surface. The material has a cloth impression on both sides as standard and can be supplied in rolls or cut to size pieces and gaskets utilising in-house CNC machinery. WRAS / WRc approved EPDM rubber sheeting is available to buy online at PAR Direct by clicking the link above.
