EPDM Tartan Flooring
It is a coating system in accordance with international standards. This rubber and EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) based system is abrasion resistant and has impact emulation feature.
It is a floor system consisting of a mixture polyurethane binder and can be applied 15 mm thickness in total with two layers; top layer is 7 mm high ultraviolet rays resistant colored EPDM rubber granules with single component and bottom layer is 8 mm SBR (Styrene-Butadiene Rubber) granules with polyurethane binder. (Thickness may vary depending on customer’s request or specification)
It is highly durable thanks to being waterproof. It is suitable for athlete’s health, minimizes the negative consequences such as slipping and sprains. It is an aesthetic flooring formed with synthetic materials designed especially for sports fields and cinder tracks.
It applies on, preferably, asphalt or concrete in desired colors with 2-3 mm thickness. System is consisting of all modified acrylic or rubber powder filled cushion surface regulator, acrylic coating and acrylic topcoat paint.
It developed for multi-purpose outdoor sports fields.
Quality and right choice of material
Using binder ratios in exact portions
Application must be done by a professional team
It does not provide efficiency from application areas that are not made in compliance with these standards, and it would be very short-termed.
For this reason, companies to work with and materials to be applied should be preferred with caution.
Differences between SBR and EPDM
SBR is made from rubber granules that recycled from vehicle tires and electrical materials. On the other hand, EPDM is made from pure rubber that produced for specifically industrial products.
SBR is lower-cost rubber type and EPDM is 3-4 times more expensive than SBR.
Unlike EPDM, SBR’s mixture has irregular structure.
SBR can be processed more easily than EPDM.
They are flexible. In terms of flexibility EPDM is much better than SBR. Both materials have strong resistance against heat, light, abrasion and aging.
