Ethylene Acrylate Rubber (EA, AEM)

EA rubber is a thermoset elastomer or rubber material. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare EA rubber to other rubber materials (top) and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
