EPDM Foam 

Scroll To Next Section

EPDM foam is generally used in a variety industry applications.

Like Neoprene, EPDM provides a watertight seal but it isn’t as effective as Neoprene when it comes to oil and chemical exposure. EPDM foam is excellent at weatherproofing due to its resistance to ageing, UV, ozone and oxidation; it also provides excellent thermal conductive and NVH solution. At Ramsay we stock EPDM foam buns. This allows us to offer our customers thicknesses of between 2mm – 50mm, if you are interested in Our Capabilities, please click the link. We also stock a variety of density’s and colours.

EPDM Foam Products

Ramsay supply a wide range of plain or adhesive backed EPDM foam GasketsFoam Tapes and Fabrication & Assembly . A majority of our EPDM products are supplied to Automotive and Mass Transit industries. This is due to EPDMs material properties and range of solutions it provides, in relation to resistance to ageing, UV, ozone and oxidation. It is also a marginally more cost effective material compared to other closed cell sponges.

At Ramsay we only use materials from industry approved suppliers. In partnership with our supply partners NittoRecticelArmacellSekisuiAvery Dennison3M and Zotefoams we are able to offer a wide range of high performance sponge, foams, fabrics and rubber materials. Consequently this enables us to achieve customer specification and manufacture high-quality products.
