UL 94 HB EPDM Gasket Applications
Applications for UL 94 HB EPDM gasket material include data centers, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, solar panels, and plastic enclosures. Elasto Proxy can provide you with flame retardant rubber that you fabricate yourself, or we can supply custom gaskets that arrive ready-to-install.
Data center operators need to prevent fires from spreading. Most fire suppression systems are water-based, and EPDM rubber offers excellent resistance to water, heat, and steam. Elasto Proxy’s UL 94 HB EPDM gasket material resists horizontal burning while providing dependable sealing for data centers.
EV Charging Stations
The high-voltage electricity that’s transferred between charging stations and EV poses a risk of fire. For EV charging couplers, UL 94 HB is America’s flammability standard. It’s also a key flammability standard for the aesthetic component of EV charger cabinets. Elasto Proxy supplies solutions for both.
Solar panels use gaskets to fill the gaps between solar cells. EPDM rubber resists sunlight, withstands tough weather conditions, and remains flexible in freezing temperatures. If a solar panel fire occurs, gaskets made from Elasto Proxy’s UL 94 HB EPDM sponge rubber can resist horizontal burning.
UL 94 HB gaskets are used in the plastic enclosures that house printed circuit boards (PCBs), electrical connectors, and DIN Rail mounted components for test equipment and medical and scientific instruments. Silicone may be required for some applications, but EPDM costs less and isn’t in short supply.
