Firstly the rubber granules (which are made from recycled rubber tyres) and the decorative aggregates are mixed together in a ratio to suit the individual project. The mixture is then combined with the polyurethane binder before being applied to the substrate. Afterwards it is then leveled to the depth required by rake, screeded or trowelled before finally being smoothed and compacted with a roller.
Once it has been installed and left to cure it is considered inert and non-toxic. It becomes porous which reduces the risk of flooding – and in winter the reduced risk of puddles means there is less likely to be ice patches which could prove dangerous to pedestrians. It is also wheelchair and pram friendly, meaning your pathway will be accessible to all.
