How to Repair the Base Layer of Your Playground Rubber Flooring

Problems in a Poured in Place Rubber surface don’t always stop at the wear layer. Damage that extends into the Impact Attenuation layer of a surface poses a serious safety concern as kids fall onto the surface from equipment; the surface needs to meet the proper fall height requirements. Any damage that reaches the base layer of a Poured in Place surface needs to be properly repaired.

  1. Mix the SBR buffings with the binder that you have received in your repair kit.
  2. Trowel the mixture into the area that needs to be repaired. Remember not to fill the hole all the way and leave room for the wear layer that also needs to be repaired.
  3. Let the repaired base layer cure before adding the wear layer on top.
