NORDEL™ EPDM products feature the widest range of ethylene content available in the industry. Available in both bale and free-flowing pellet forms, this portfolio is progressively expanding with new products tailored to meet specific customer and industry needs.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM)
Driving for better rubber pellets with more sustainability solutions
Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, or EPDM for short, is a durable material made to withstand the toughest conditions. It can handle high temperatures and abrasive chemicals. Even though it's a tough material, that doesn't mean it has to be tough to work with. Our EPDM products are cleaner, easier to work with and enable efficient manufacturing.
These high-quality, virtually gel-free polymers - including ultra-high-molecular-weight and oil-extended grades - are an excellent choice for a long list of automotive, construction, consumer and other applications.
Our EPDM is made using proprietary, advanced molecular catalyst (AMC) technology in a solution process, which allows it to do some amazing things. AMC technology enables the tailored design of EPDM molecular architecture, including balanced processing and physical properties. Key benefits of this exclusive technology include:
- Ultra-high molecular weight
- Broad molecular weight distribution capability
- High diene content
- High to low polymer Mooney viscosity
- Oil-extended grades
- Wide range of ethylene content, from amorphous to semi-crystalline
- Higher long chain branching capability
- Ultra-clean, low gel content
- High productivity
- Fast mixing and processing
- Fast curing
- Increased filler acceptance
- Extrusion and injection foaming
- Improved filler additives incorporation and dispersion
- Scrap reduction
