Overview:

EPDM sheeting is one of the most versatile types of rubber sheeting and is the most suitable for outdoor applications. It is highly resistant to ageing, even when exposed to the most aggressive external conditions: steam, UV rays, ozone, saltpetre or extreme weather conditions. EPDM sheeting maintains its properties even when subjected to a wide range of temperature differences. As a result it is consistently used in general industry and in construction, marine and outdoor applications.
