Global Ethylene Propylene Rubber Market: Overview

The principal uses of ethylene propylene copolymers are in automobile parts, flexible seals for automobiles, weather stripping, wire and cable insulation, hoses, tire sidewalls, and roofing film.

Ethylene propylene rubber is useful for its excellent resistance to heat, oxidation, weather, and ozone due to its stable, saturated polymer backbone structure. Ethylene propylene rubbers are widely used in the automotive industry as they display exceptional heat resistance properties and are not affected by continually changing weather.

There are mainly two types of ethylene propylene copolymers with elastic properties: EPM, which is made with ethylene and propylene alone, and EPDM, which is based on three monomers that includes ethylene, propylene, and small amounts of a diene.
