RH Nuttall is a leading UK supplier and manufacturer of an extensive range of EPDM washers in a multitude of material grades and thicknesses. We can produce EPDM washers to virtually any specification, shape and size to suit your requirements and applications.
Due to our state of the art automated machinery and wide variety of tooling available, we can offer industry-leading turnaround times, flexibility and highly competitive pricing, making us the market leader in the mass production and supply of quality EPDM washers in the UK and on a global scale.
Our EPDM washers are made from a high quality grade of EPDM rubber and are used in many water applications, providing excellent resistance to fresh and sea water, as well as oxidisation, ultra violet, ozone damage, ageing and weathering.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer or more commonly known as EPDM rubber is a specialised based material and is particularly suited to a wide range of sealing applications.
There are many other advantages to using EPDM rubber washers, other than just for sealing purposes. Depending on any temperature considerations or compression rates required, EPDM washers can be used in the construction industry, home appliances and the architectural or automotive trades. EPDM rubber washers are supplied in a black colour and they provide an excellent balance between both cost and performance.
Small and large quantities of EPDM rubber washers
Here at RH Nuttall, we have the facilities and availability to produce small runs of EPDM washers if only smaller quantities are required, as well as being able to produce multi-thousand runs of EPDM washers to suit larger demands.
Application specific EPDM washers
At RH Nuttall we ensure the correct grade of EPDM rubber is chosen in order to provide the most effective washer for the application.
More commonly, EPDM rubber is used for water resistant purposes or applications, for example garden and hose appliances, roofing applications, mechanical goods and sealing electrical cable jointing. We can also supply EPDM that is WRC (Water Research Council) approved or WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved, so can be used in both hot and cold water applications, for example throughout the water board industry where parts coming into contact with water must adhere to strict guidelines.
Various shore hardnesses (SH) of EPDM Washers available
At RH Nuttall we manufacture our standard EPDM rubber washers in 70SH, but 60SH to 80SH EPDM rubber washers are also readily available depending on the thickness of the base material required and the quantity requested.
Hardness can play an important role in sealing with compression and torque rates crucial to gaining successful results. Our dedicated sales team are always available to give advice where necessary.
Thicknesses of EPDM washers available
Thicknesses of our EPDM washers can be from 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 10mm to 12mm and for WRC or WRAS approved from 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm to 6mm. Depending on the grade or hardness of the EPDM rubber required and our stock levels of base material, will determine the thickness available. Our sales team will be able to advise on availability accordingly.
