What Rubber Flooring Rolls Use EPDM Rubber?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2022

EPDM rubber features a higher tensile strength than natural rubber and will return to its original shape when stretched. It’s durable and resistant to heat and light.

EPDM rubber is made from two main components - ethylene and propylene, which are derived from oil and natural gas. Because EPDM rubber is resistant to damage from extreme temperatures, chemicals, ozone, weathering, and sunlight, manufacturers and suppliers of rubber flooring use it to create high quality products - like an EPDM rubber roll.
