Currently there are more than 20 kinds of rubber elastomers widely used in various rubber material depends on individual needs . EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer ) EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer (M-class) rubber), is a type of synthetic rubber, an elastomer which is characterized by a wide range of applications. The E refers to ethylene, P to propylene, D to diene and M refers to its classification in ASTM standard D-1418.
