Lauren Manufacturing Introduces New Low Density EPDM Sponge for Continuous Extrusion Profiles

New Philadelphia, OH, March 22, 2009 --( Lauren Manufacturing has developed a new low density EPDM sponge product for continuously extruded profiles. The compound is capable of maintaining a 6-8 pound per cubic foot density on closed cell sponge profiles and can be processed through both LCM salt bath and microwave/hot air curing processes.

This new material provides high performance for applications requiring excellent UV and ozone resistance. “The benefits of a low specific gravity material are well understood. Profiles are lightweight, less costly, and these new materials have great surface and cell structure”, said Lauren President Lisa Huntsman.

It also offers enhanced sealing properties for applications requiring low closing forces, color availability and intricate shape ability in both small and large sizes (up to 3”x1.5”). “This technology greatly increases Lauren’s capability with regard to the type and size of profile we’re able to produce,” added Huntsman.

Lauren continues to support new technology that offers innovative solutions and customer advantages in a challenging business climate.
