Rubber EPDM gasket material with good resistance to moderate caustics and excellent resistance to low pressure steam, hot water, ozone and UV aging. EPDM is available in two common grades; Sulfide Cured and Peroxide Cured as detailed below.
EPDM Gasket Thomson Style 563 (Sulfide)
Sulfide cured is considered a “standard grade” and has basic chemical and temperature resistance.
EPDM Gasket Thomson Style 6965 (Peroxide)
Peroxide cured EPDM gasket with superior chemical compatibility and temperature resistance to 300°F. Style 6965 also has superior resistance to compression set and will retain resilience for longer periods in service.
