EDPM rubber crumb is EPDM rubberised granules
EDPM rubber crumb is EPDM rubberised granules that is basically mistyped. The reason for this blog is because several well known architects in the UK have EDPM specified on projects and the real name for this type of rubber crumb material is ethylene propylene diene monomer.
The rubberised granules is used on site mixed with binder to create a wet pour safety surface which is tested to BSEN 1177 and tested to meet CFH critical fall height requirements for children and kids to play on the playgrounds and equipment.
SBR rubber chippings are usually installed beneath the wearing course which is also installed insitu on site and it is this base course layer that gives the impact absorbing cushioned layer that makes the surface be soft surfacing, bouncy flooring, spongy surfaces or also known as a rubber tarmac finish.
