Frequently asked questions

RUBBER

IS THE RUBBER COATING ANTI SLIP?


YES! EVEN WHEN WET!




WHAT THICKNESS DOES THE RUBBER COATING GO DOWN?


STANDARD APPLICATION THICKNESS IS ABOUT 3/8 INCH; WITH THIS DEPTH OF APPLICATION IT MAKES TRANSITIONS VERY EASY AND CLEAN. IN SAYING THAT WE CAN APPLY AT ANY THICKNESS IF NEEDED, IN SITUATIONS WHERE DETERIORATION OF YOUR SURFACE IS QUITE SEVERE.




CAN YOU USE A SHOVEL AND A SNOW BLOWER ON THE RUBBER COATING?


YES YOU CAN USE A SHOVEL AS WELL AS A SNOW BLOWER WITH NO ISSUES; YOU CAN ALSO USE BLEACH, DEGREASERS, AND EVERYDAY CHEMICALS AS NEEDED, AS WELL AS SALT WHEN NEEDED IN WINTER.




WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO CLEAN THE RUBBER COATING WHEN NEEDED?


THE EASIEST AND MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO CLEAN THE RUBBER COATING IS BY USING A PRESSURE WASHER – IT CAN HANDLE UP TO 4000 PSI. WE RECOMMEND GIVING YOUR SURFACE A GOOD PRESSURE WASH 2-4 TIMES A YEAR WHEN THE SEASONS CHANGE OVER AS WELL AS IN BETWEEN WHEN NEEDED.




IS THE RUBBER COATING WATERPROOF?


NO, OUR RUBBER COATING IS SEMI PERMEABLE; THEREFORE WHEN APPLYING OVERTOP OF ANY SORT OF WOOD SURFACE WE WILL ALWAYS WATERPROOF THE WOOD PRIOR TO INSTALLING THE COATING.




IS IT AN OPTION TO APPLY THE RUBBER COATING ON A DRIVEWAY THAT IS CURRENTLY JUST GRAVEL?


WE DO NOT PERSONALLY OFFER THIS OPTION AS WE HAVE SEEN AN UNDESIRABLE END RESULT ON A FEW OCCASIONS, BUT THERE ARE COMPANIES OUT THERE THAT OFFER THIS TYPE OF INSTALLATION.




IS IT POSSIBLE TO CUSTOMIZE A COLOR IF I AM LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC?


YES ABSOLUTELY; WITH MOST OF OUR PRODUCTS YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE SURFACE IN QUITE A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS. INQUIRE WITH US FOR YOUR DIFFERENT OPTIONS!




WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF A MANUFACTURED RUBBER PRODUCT, COMPARED TO A RECYCLED PRODUCT?


THE BENEFIT TO ALL OF OUR COLORED RUBBER MATERIALS BEING MANUFACTURED VERSUS RECYCLED IS THAT THESE COLORS ARE MADE TO BE THAT EXACT COLOR. THEY ARE NOT COATED, PAINTED OR DYED ; THEY ARE FULLY MANUFACTURED TO THAT COLOR. THIS ENSURES THAT YOUR SURFACE WILL ALWAYS BE THE COLOR THAT IT WAS FROM DAY ONE.





EPOXY & POLYASPARTIC

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EPOXY & POLYASPARTIC?


THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EPOXY & POLYASPARTIC IS THAT EPOXY WILL AMBER OVER TIME WITH UV EXPOSURE, WHERE AS POLYASPARTIC WILL NOT BECAUSE IT IS UV STABLE.




WHAT IS THE PREPARATION PROCESS PRIOR TO INSTALLING AN EPOXY OR POLYASPARTIC FLOOR COATING?


WE WONT BORE YOU WITH EVERY LITTLE DETAIL, AS THE FULL PREP PROCESS IS QUITE IN DEPTH ; BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IS WE FULLY GRIND AND THOROUGHLY VACUMM THE ENTIRE SURFACE. THIS REMOVES ANY EXISTING PRODUCTS AND CONTAMINANTS ON THE SURFACE AS WELL AS OPENS UP THE PORES OF THE CONCRETE TO ENSURE A PROPER BOND.
