Setting – Poured Rubber Flooring

Poured rubber floors use polyurethane as its raw material. Poured rubber floors are known for their seamless finish, durability and easy maintenance. Though its installation requires a little bit of preparation. Below is the step by step procedure to install a poured rubber floor:

Step 1

First of all, you need to dig a trench for the concrete where the rubber flooring would be poured. The depth has to enough for accommodating concrete and rubber together.

Step 2

Next, one by six foot boards need to be placed around the peripheral of the decided area creating a concrete form. Fix them together with nails at their ends.

Step 3

Now, pour the concrete and smooth it out with a trowel. As soon as the cement is dry, Crushed Aggregate Base (CAB) has to laid out. It has to be minimum 3 inches thick and should support a 1/4 inch slope for drainage.

Step 4

The styrene butadiene rubber which needs to be blended with CAB provides a resilient rubber. It has to be blended with Flexilon 1118 binder before being troweled into the CAB.

Step 5

Lastly, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer has to be mixed with a polyurethane binder which would be troweled in a wheel barrel till the time its smooth. Now pour it out within the decided area at least 3/8 inches thick. In case the area is large, rent a mixer for mixing. The rubber flooring would take near about 48 hours to set properly.
