  • Synthetic ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM) has a wide range of applications such as seals, belts, hoses, cable jacketing, and roofing membranes. Although the saturated backbone provides resistance to oxidation, additives can be used to increase the formulation’s durability when needed. In this work, we studied the role of additives to thermo-oxidative resistance of peroxide cured EPDM compound for the automotive coolant hose application. Several analytical characterizations were introduced to study the changes in molecular structure and the formation of functional groups during the course of heat aging.
