Product Information

Versatile EPDM foam rubber

VR Trade supplies a wide range of foam (cellular) rubber sheets. The Foam rubber  sheets are available in various thicknesses and are made of EPDM quality. Sheets are used for sealing two surfaces or gaps in a specific appliance. Various industrial sectors use our products from construction and electrical to lighting and automotive Companies. Sheets are used for sound deadening purposes, leakage prevention, airflow reduction, packaging purposes as well as insulation, cushioning and shock absorption.

Features of EPDM foam rubber

The EPDM foam rubber sheet is highly resistant to weathering and ketones (acetone) and also UV light and ozone resistant. It does not perform well with oil, gasoline, mild acids, alkalis at normal concentration, alcohol and turpentine.

Execution

The EPDM cellular rubber is available in strips, sheets and plates. VR Trade can supply the EPDM in black, grey and white color. The strips are cut by VR Trade at the time the order is placed. This guarantees a good glue layer. The strips, sheets and plates can be supplied with or without one side self adhesive.
