Description

LimeRubber SoftPlay Surfacing is a system consisting of either rubber EPDM granule and/ or rubber mulch, and a quality non-UV aromatic binder resin for pedestrian traffic. Ultraviolet (UV)-stable aliphatic binders are available where colour and optimum performance are required. The system is used to create a permeable, highly decorative, safe surface which absorbs sound and impact, and can be installed onto a sound, stable and solid base such as concrete or no-fines concrete, or macadam/ asphalt surface. When installed onto an SBR granule shockpad, the system will conform to the requirements of the Critical Fall Height (CFH) guidance notes for the safety of children using a variety of playground apparatuses.

Binder/ resin and rubber granules:

LimeRubber polyurethane binder is designed specifically for bonding rubber granules and other rubber products. The binder is available as an aromatic isocyanate (standard) or an aliphatic prepolymer (UV-resistant) on request. Both products are single-component, moisture-curing, medium-viscosity polyurethane binders.

The rubber EPDM and/ or mulch/ bark layer as a topping/ wearing course is installed at 15 mm onto a suitable SBR shockpad, or from 20 mm when directly onto a solid base. Coloured EPDM granules are made from a compound of EPDM rubber, specialist pigment and UV stabilizers.

Features and benefits:

  • High-quality polyurethane binder/ resin.
  • Optimized ratio resin to rubber blend for optimum performance.
  • Absorbent Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS)-compliant system to drain surface water.
  • Multiple colours are available.
  • Meets CFH requirements.
  • Recycled for environmental benefits.
  • Flexible and strong.
  • Low maintenance.
  • In excess of 200 m² can be installed per day.
  • No additional cacogenic catalyst handling required on site.
  • The system is designed for foot traffic and occasional light-service vehicular traffic. It is not to be used as a road surface for either domestic or commercial traffic.

Application:

Suitable for children's playground surfaces (where critical fall height requirements are a major consideration), sports surfaces (athletics tracks, hockey and football pitches, multi-use games areas), walkways, golf bunker linings, tree pits, swimming pool surrounds, universities, schools, colleges and multiple landscaping projects.
