EPDM is one of the kinds of the synthetic rubber which are made in forms of granules known as EPMD granule and have multiple applications. The chemical composition of this kind of the rubber makes it resistant to the UV rays and enhances the elasticity of it. Not only this but it is also fire resistant and is also used as the insulation for electricity. The EPDM granules are actually the scraps of the remaining EPDM and these granules are of the size of around 2 to 4 mm. The reason why these EPDM granules are used so that the rubber waste could be saved and recycled.
Other types of the rubber granule than the EPDM:
Just like the EPDM is one of the types of the rubber granule, there are many other types of the rubber granules that can also be used for varying purposes such as Nitrile, EPR, NBR, Butyl, Neoprene and others. All of these have different chemical composition and therefore have different properties.
The uses of the rubber granules:
The EPDM granule are used in different industries for different purposes and some of these are discussed below:
The EPDM granule are used in the manufacturing of the bumpers, fenders and even the splash guards. These are also used in the manufacturing of the floor mats and floor liners which are used in various vehicles as well as the cars and truck.
Since construction is a very vast industry and therefore, the EPDM granule are very useful for different purposes. These are especially used in the flooring of the bathrooms and the hospitals. These are perfect for the flooring of industries as well. Mostly in the construction industry the EPDM granule are used in the floor tiles manufacturing. Sometimes, these are coloured in to number of shades to make the floor even more beautiful, because of the waterproof property of the material these are used in making the foundations where water resistant it important.
These are also used in the drainage industry to repair the pipes and the roads and is considered to be ideal for the conditioning of the soil.
Rubber of any kind has the property to work as the best seal to various leaking areas and because the EPDM granule are in small sizes these could be used as the adhesives to fix various leaks.
The EPDM granule could also be used in the manufacturing of the safety produces to absorb the shocks and also used in the sound barriers for the highway roads.
Different sports arenas use the rubber for the flooring such as the badminton, tennis and even the floor of the kindergarten is made from the rubber.
