If there is a need for a soft sponge pad to be used in the outdoors for prolonged periods of time, then this EPDM sponge sheet is the best option for the job. The rubber compound known as EPDM was specifically developed in the 1960s to serve as a rubber that could withstand long-term exposure to UV and ozone. These sheets are an open cell rubber variation that is ideal for use as seals, gaskets, and protective padding. These sheets are extremely soft and compressible, allowing for greater flexibility and recovery after compression.
Made for the Outdoors: Open cell EPDM is the perfect foam sheet for any application where the presence of sunlight and other elements is present. UV and ozone have a tendency to harm certain types of materials after a while, but that is not the case with EPDM foam. It is designed to have a longer lifespan when exposed to the elements.
Excellent Compressibility: This EPDM rubber foam is among the most compressible products currently available. The cellular composition of this open cell rubber material is the secret behind its ability to compress. The cell structure is composed of tiny air pockets that have gaps in between them. When force is applied to the surface of the EPDM sponge, these air pockets will close in on themselves. The source of the pressure will also not face any resistance due to the soft nature of open cell sponge. The EPDM foam sheet will maintain its compressed form as long as the object applying the pressure remains.
Fast Recovery: The open cell EPDM has the ability to revert back to its original shape after compression. When the source of pressure is removed from the open cell rubber sheet’s surface, the air pockets within its cellular composition will revert back to their original shape. This helps the EPDM rubber foam maintain a working lifespan suitable to long-term use in applications that require constant compression.
