The purpose of this study is to establish an effective way to utilize the application of EPDM-Polymer blends. First of all, the physical properties for EPDM/NR blends and compounding agents were studied. The results are shown as follows: 1. In blending, tensile strength and tear strength decreased with increase in EPDM contents. It was not effective more than the ratio of EPDM/NR is 50/50. 2. Elongation is influenced by blending, especially the ratio of EPDM/NR is 50/50. 3. It was found that both the resistance for ozone and aging were much improved after blending.
