Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) gaskets are manufactured from a highly elastic synthetic rubber material and are a multi-purpose gasket suitable for a wide range of both indoor and outdoor applications.
With the ability to withstand both freezing and extremely high temperatures, these rubber gaskets are ideal for use in steam service duty, while their resistance to acids and alkaline makes them a good choice in a range of food processing plants. The synthetic material is also suitable for exterior applications including roofing, with its impermeable finish resistant to weather, ageing, abrasion, and water.
EPDM gaskets are categorised by grades including commercial-grade, WRAS approved, FDA approved, and flame and acid resistance. Our team have over 50 years of experience in gasket manufacture and are on hand to help you select the most effective materials for your application.
A popular choice for utility companies, these gaskets are manufactured to BS 6920-1:2000 and BS 6920-1:2014 requirements, making them suitable for a range of applications involving water for human consumption.
Meeting EC 1935/2004 and FDA 21 CFR177.2600 regulations, these gaskets are often fabricated from non-toxic white materials for use in the manufacture of food and beverages, including alcohol, meat, and dairy.
A cost-effective alternative to other fire-resistant materials, our flame retardant EPDM gaskets have excellent tensile strength and are highly resistant to weathering, tearing, and exposure to the elements.
Conforming to ICI M228 specifications, these high-grade EPDM gaskets are resistant to highly abrasive processes, such as those using acids, alkalines and other chemicals.
All of our EPDM gaskets are precision manufactured from a wide range of rubber sheet materials at our base in West Yorkshire. We have over 50 years’ experience in gasket manufacture, utilising our technical expertise and a range of CNC and punch-press machinery to ensure that gaskets are produced accurately and consistently for every client.
Many customers opt for our full turnkey manufacturing service, including CAD design, material specification, manufacture and global distribution. Alternatively, our experienced team use existing gaskets or clients’ designs and templates to produce single or multiple gaskets. All of our EPDM gaskets are supplied to recognised national and international standards, including WRAS, FDA, EC and ICI.
Rubber gaskets can be manufactured from an extensive range of graded sheet materials for both interior and exterior applications involving high temperatures and pressures, water, fuels and oils, among others.
With applications including food and water processing, it is paramount that the correct materials are selected to ensure compliance with strict national and international guidelines.
