Ethylene Propylene (EP) elastomer is the third largest synthetic rubber market after styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and polybutadiene rubber (PBR). Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM), a key type of EP elastomer, has excellent resistance to ozone and heat, and good resistance to alkalis, acids, and oxygenated solvents. Asia is the largest and fastest growing market, representing about 43% of global demand.
EPDM is used in a wide range of applications including gaskets and window seals in the automotive industry and roofing membrane and insulation material in the construction industry.
