Poured In Place Rubber Safety Surfacing Mixing Procedures

At Vancouver Safety Surfacing, we take pride to ensure our strict standards for mixing are followed each and every time a batch of our Poured In Place Rubber is mixed on site!

Our process generally involves the following steps:

  1. Surface Preparation:
    • Ensure the sub-base is properly prepared and leveled.
    • Repair any cracks or uneven areas.
  2. Materials:
    • Poured-in-place rubber typically comes in the form of EPDM granules or SBR chips.
    • The rubber is mixed with an aromatic or aliphatic polyurethane binder.
  3. Mixing:
    • The rubber granules are mixed with the binder in specific ratios, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines.
    • A mixing machine or paddle mixer is often used to ensure a uniform mixture.
  4. Installation:
    • The mixed material is then poured and spread over the prepared surface.
    • It is troweled or screeded to achieve an even thickness.
  5. Curing:
    • The material needs time to cure and harden. The curing time can vary based on the specific product and environmental conditions.
  6. Finishing:
    • Once cured, the surface may be finished with a topcoat to enhance durability and provide additional protection.

When working with poured-in-place rubber, it’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for the specific product you’re using. This ensures the proper mixing ratios, installation procedures, and curing times are followed, leading to a safe and durable finished surface.

Always consider safety measures, use appropriate personal protective equipment, and consult with the product supplier or manufacturer for detailed instructions tailored to the specific product you’re working with.
