Rubber Tubes and Profiles

Rubber Tubes and Profiles

Rubber tubes and profiles, particularly those made of EPDM (Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer), are known for their excellent properties and versatility of use in various industrial sectors.

EPDM is a type of synthetic rubber that offers a unique combination of resistance, durability, and stability.

Here are the main characteristics of EPDM tubes produced by Tecnoextr:

– Extreme Temperature Resistance: EPDM tubes and profiles have excellent resistance to temperatures, both low and high, maintaining flexibility and structural integrity in a temperature range generally from -50°C to +150°C.

– Weathering Resistance: They show remarkable resistance to UV exposure, ozone, and climate variations, making them ideal for outdoor applications where weathering resistance is crucial.

– Chemical Resistance: They offer good resistance to many diluted acids, alkalis, and saline solutions. However, they are not recommended for use with hydrocarbons and oils, as they can swell and degrade in the presence of these materials.

– Aging Properties: EPDM tubes and profiles are known for their long lifespan thanks to their resistance to aging and deterioration over time.

– Flexibility and Elasticity: Despite their resistance and durability, EPDM tubes are flexible and exhibit good elasticity, allowing them to absorb shocks and vibrations.

– Electrical Insulation: EPDM has excellent electrical insulation properties, making EPDM tubes suitable for applications where electrical insulation is required.
