Crushed EPDM Foam

What Is It:

A special bun material which is neither 100% closed nor 100% open. By passing through rollers a number of times at pressure, you produce a bun with the following superb properties:

  • Low Compression Deflection like Open Cell Foam
  • Compression Set like Open Cell Foam
  • Water Sealing Ability nearing Closed Cell Foam

Why It’s Special:

Because the foam is press molded, a significant gain in performance and cell-structure consistency is generated compared to competitors who supply similar material in roll form.  

What Does It Mean For You:

  • A gap currently exists in the North American market for these higher performing, low cost bun-based materials.
  • Automotive OEMs such as GM are introducing standards which evaluate different foams based on their ability to hold a water seal at varying deflections.

Applications For Crushed EPDM Include:

  • Sealing
  • Sound Absorbing
  • Softness Control
  • Heat Resistance
