The newest class of synthetic rubbers, the ethylenepropylene rubbers, abbreviated to EPR, offer improved ozone and oxidation resistance which it is believed will show advantages in many automotive weathersealing applications at costs equal or less than currently used rubbers. Other applications foreseen for these rubbers are sponge trim padding, armrest pads, and windlace, electrical wiring, hose, floor mats, grommets, and bumpers.
