I have a client specifying an EDPM strap on a bid. What’s EDPM?
EDPM is an abbreviation for a type of rubber compound. The full chemical name is Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer, but suppliers should know exactly what you’re talking about if you just say EDPM. It’s used in a variety of applications, including bungee cords, flexible washers, pond liners, and roofing membranes.
