• Epichlorohydrin, or ECO rubber, is very similar to nitrile rubber when it comes to its properties, only with better resistance to petrol, heat, and oil.
  • ECO has low gas permeability and low-temperature flexibility, not to mention excellent resistance to ozone, alkalis, and acids. Of course, it is difficult to use ECO rubber as a sealing material because of its poor compression set limits, and since it tends to corrode metals, your tooling costs might be high and your metal-bonding applications could be limited.
  • ECO rubber is used in vehicle fuel systems, rollers, bladders, and diaphragms.
