EPDM Sponge Washers

At CB frost, EPDM sponge is kept as roll stock material as standard, allowing us to supply a wide range of EPDM washers, cut to size using our in house manufacturing facilities.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer or EPDM sponge is a closed cell sponge that is commonly used as a washer material. With its high resistance to ozone, UV and weathering, combined with its resistance to abrasion, EPDM sponge gaskets very well suited outdoor applications and for automotive use.

EPDM sponge has wide temperature range of between -40 ˚C and +110˚C (depending on the grade) and as a result is commonly used for outdoor purposes such as a sealing solution for dust and moisture protection. Some of the other key advantages of specifying EPDM sponge for use as a washer material is its good resistance to electricity and its impressive compression resistance.
