The rubber EPDM layer as a topping/wearing course is installed at 15mm onto a suitable 25mm SBR shock pad/base (40mm Total). The Rubber Mulch is installed at 40mm. Coloured EPDM granules are made from a compound of EPDM rubber, specialist pigment and UV stabilisers. The LimeRubber SBR shock pad/base is a recycled tyre granulate suitable for base layer applications. The rubber mulch/bark is processed to remove steel, fibre and dust to produce a clean high quality rubber granulate.
