What is poured in place rubber?
PIP rubber is made from SBR (styrene-butadiene rubber) base, and an EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) wears a coat. It is also known as wet pour rubber flooring. This type of surfacing is generally done over a hard, compact substrate such as concrete or compacted stone. Drainage patterns must be included during the planning process of PIP rubber. It is porous, and it allows water to pass through it.
What are the applications of PIP rubber?
These are the following places where this surfacing finds most uses:
- Pool decks
- Sports track

How can you maintain and take proper care of your safety surfacing?
Cleaning the surface
The first step towards maintaining this type of rubber surfacing is to remove the sand, dirt, small stones, and moss that might get clogged in the space between the upper EPDM coats. These materials must be removed as negligence can lead to material accumulation, weakening the bonds between the rubber granules. These substances can be abrasive and clog important drainage openings. In simple terms, it is necessary to clean the surface.
A nylon broom must be used as it goes easy on the surface. Metal bristle brooms must be avoided as they can shovel and dislodge rubber granules. While mopping or washing, hard detergents must be avoided. Chemicals like xylene must be avoided as they can dissolve glues and cause the rubber surface to erode and make it discolored. Routine cleaning can be done with a microfiber mop, simple garden hose, push broom, and a mild detergent. Power washing of the surface must be restricted as it can dislodge EPDM granules, degrade polyurethane binder, and weaken the surface. Special floor sanitizers can be used to sanitize the surfaces.
Prewashing with mild soaps can be used to tackle stains on this type of rubber surfacing. If the stain is quite stubborn, it may require special treatment. But very harsh chemicals need to be avoided as they can lead to hampering longevity. Quick steps to handle the stain are as follows:
- Graffiti can be easily removed by scrubbing the area with mild detergent and a soft brush.
- Harsh chemicals such as acid, alkali, gasoline, paint thinner, WD40 can be dangerous to the area. In situations like these, you can contact us immediately, and we can help you with the perfect solutions.
- Chewing gum can be removed with dry ice. It can be chipped off once it freezes.
Keeping safe from sharp objects
These safety surfacing surfaces are designed to protect children from injuries and safeguard them. Being soft and spring, it can be easily damaged by sharp metal objects such as metal chairs, ladders, shovels.
What is the choice of cushion layer available for use?
The cushion layer that is used should be compatible with the wear layer. The choice of cushion layer that is available are:
- Strands of SBR may vary from 0.5 mm to 2.0 mm in thickness by 3 mm to 20 mm.
- Chunk premium black rubber granules
- Foam or standard rubber granules are not to be considered.
