Wet Pour Rubber Crumb is a play surface made of granulated rubber crumb, ideal for surfaces requiring impact protection such as playgrounds and play areas.
The surface has passed the most comprehensive testing criteria which includes critical fall height, flammability, indentation and abrasive wear. It also allows for a huge choice of colours, shapes, and play features, including mounds to be sculptured.
WET POUR RUBBER CRUMB APPLICATIONS
Wet pour is ideally suited for use in schools, nurseries, parks, playgrounds and public play area surfaces. It is also porous, so water will drain through the surface layers, meaning it is suitable for use all year round.

HOW WE LAY WET POUR
Wet pour is constructed using two layers of rubber; a wearing course – EPDM rubber which is available in a range of colours, and a base course which is recycled black rubber and provides the impact absorption. In most cases the two layers of wet pour rubber are laid onto a prepared hard surface, such as stone (MOT) or macadam.
Whilst on site we mix rubber granules with resin binder.
The mixture of rubber and resin is levelled to the required thickness. A screed, roller or hand trowel is used to smooth and lightly compact the wet pour to gain an even, level finish.
Graphics and designs are inserted into the wet pour by cutting shapes and filling with alternative relevant colours. The surface will be ready to use the following day.
Wet pour is available in a variety of colours. We group these colours into Standard colours, Non Standard colours, Premium colours, and Mixed colours. Colours shown are for reference only. For exact colour matches, please request a sample.
Q: What is EPDM?
A: EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer – or in short, synthetic rubber.
Q: What depth is wet pour laid to?
A: The top layer of the wet pour, or wearing course is laid to a minimum of 15mm. If equipment is present we measure the critical fall height and adjust the base course, depending on the amount of impact absorbing protection that is needed.
Q: Where is the rubber and resin sourced from?
A: We source all our rubber from the UK and western Europe only. This ensures that our products comply with safety standards and are non toxic.
Q: How soon can the surface be used afterwards?
A: We would always recommend a minimum of 24 hours – especially during winter months when the binder takes longer to cure
Q: Which edgings should be used?
A: We would recommend that edges are pre-cast-concrete or rubber to ensure that the contraction and expansion of rubber due to temperature changes in the weather does not cause gaps between the edge and the surface.
