What is the difference between Bouncy Bond & Wet Pour?

Bouncy Bond Rubber Bonding

We are often asked about the differences between our Bouncy Bond and Wet Pour products so here's a brief explanation to help you decide.

Both types of surfaces are similar in performance, providing a long lasting and cost-effective solution to most play areas.

The Bouncy Bond system utilises coloured rubber derived from industrial truck tyres; this rubber replicates traditional bark.

Thereafter, the rubber is mixed on site along with a polyurethane resin binder; this mixture is allowed to cure for 48 hours until dry, the children are then able to play upon the surface.

The Wet Pour surface is a 2 tier system consisting of a base rubber (SBR) along with a rubber topping (EPDM); Again both tiers are mixed with polyurethane resin binder.

The Wet Pour surface consists of very small pieces of rubber measuring 1-3mm in particle size, it almost has the appearance of tarmac once laid, but much more bouncy!!

The Wet Pour system takes longer to install as the base layer needs to be laid and allowed to cure prior to the top layer being applied.
