Featured Solution : Low-density EPDM sponge

Lauren Manufacturing has developed a new low density closed-cell EPDM sponge product for continuously extruded profiles. The compound is capable of maintaining a 6-8 pound per cubic foot density. The material can be processed through both LCM salt bath and microwave/hot air extrusion lines.

Lauren Manufacturing has developed a new low-density EPDM sponge product for continuously extruded profiles.

The compound is capable of maintaining a density of 6-8 pounds per cubic foot. The material can be processed through both LCM salt bath and microwave/hot air extrusion lines.

EPDM provides high performance for applications requiring excellent UV and ozone resistance.

“Profiles extruded from this material not only have a reduction in overall weight compared to other similar ASTM D1056 2A2 sponge compounds, but also has a great cosmetic surface and cell structure”, said Lauren President Lisa Huntsman.

The material offers enhanced sealing properties for applications requiring low closing forces and intricate shape maintenance in both small and large cross-sections.

In addition, a variety of adhesive systems also bond very well with this new compound.

“This technology greatly increases Lauren’s capability with regard to the type and size of profile we’re able to produce and offer current and potential clients,” added Huntsman.
