Raise the Roof: EPDM Rubber and its uses

Some of you might be familiar with EPDM Rubber. For instance, at RubberBond, we’ve used it to create an excellent flat roofing solution. But it plays many other roles across a multitude of industries due largely to its durability, flexibility, and affordability. The sectors EPDM rubber is vital in include the following:

  • Automotive Assembly
  • Industrial Production
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • (And of course,) Roofing

More details about EPDM Rubber

Automotive Assembly

This material contributes greatly to the production of cars and other automotive vehicles. It is in seals for doors, windows, and boots, whilst playing a part in window spacers and cable harnesses. Perhaps their most important contribution to automotive, however, is their role in hydraulic brake systems, which makes it a near-essential material.

Industrial Production

In most factory systems, EPDM Rubber is a very common material. From water system O-Rings, to tubing and belts, to electrical insulators as well as stinger covers, it’s a vital component in many industrial settings.


Once again, this material is used as a sealant in many ventilation and heating systems. In addition, EPDM Rubber can be found in compressor grommets, as well as most drain and pressure switch tubing. 


And finally, as we’re all too familiar with, EPDM Rubber offers a unique solution both as a roof membrane and as a roof coating. It is easy to install, can last several decades, and requires little maintenance. This makes it perfect for flat roof construction, for projects spanning across a range of residential as well as commercial properties.
