The performance of traditional EPDM now in Liquid form for coatings application

Lion has pioneered the use of EPDM in new applications leading to the introduction of Trilene® Liquid EPDM polymers to the coatings industry.



Trilene® 65, a low molecular weight EPDM terpolymer, provides coatings formulators with strong adhesion to a variety of substrates, excellent durability under the harshest environmental conditions and superior impact resistance and flexibility at low temperatures. Trilene® 65 can be formulated into high solids, VOC compliant coatings that have performance of traditional EPDM materials.


• Exceptional resistance to ozone, UV, water and chemical degradation
• Extremely low moisture permeability
• Strong adhesion to most substrates
• Hydrophobic with low surface energy
• Heat, UV and chemical cross-linking options
• Superior toughness, and impact resistance, even at low temperatures
• Supports high filler and plasticizer loading
• Extremely flexible and abrasion resistant
• Unique electrical properties

The exceptional durability and toughness of traditional EPDM is now available in a low viscosity form for coatings formulators



  • Roof Coatings
  • Barrier coatings that provide air, water or chemical impermeability
  • DTM or system applications in corrosive environments
  • Electrically resistant or conductive coatings
  • Extreme environment protective coating systems
  • Marine anti-fouling applications
  • Force cure systems
