Polylast Comfort & Safety Flooring is made from a proprietary blend, the base of which is made entirely from recycled tires. The processed rubber is pre-coated with a patented blend of chemicals and the rubber can be colored per the users choice. The size of the rubber “crumbs” varies depending on the use of the Comfort & Safety product, and the specific chemical mixture can be varied to provide different degrees of softness and resiliency. The elongation and tensile strength of Polylast C&S is remarkably high making it virtually indestructible and especially suitable for high stress or high impact applications. It is very fine powder creates a soft and resilient surface used for kennel floors, veterinary surgical applications, or interior play areas. These surfaces provide much greater comfort since they have a high cushion effect and act as great thermal and moisture barriers. This Comfort & Safety floor is non-porous so it is easy to clean and sterilize, while the inherent strength makes these surfaces extremely durable and long lasting.
A medium crumb is used for trailers and large floor areas such as barns, stalls, and wash racks. The larger crumb gives these surfaces more texture, helping with traction for your horse as well as giving him a comfortable cushioned area to stand on. These Comfort & Safety Floors are generally made to be more porous, allowing moisture to pass through and help keep the surface dryer and cleaner, and eliminates the need for bedding. Also, Polylast’s strength and integrity keep the subsurfaces intact and eliminates the need for repairs.
A large crumb is used as the base for stall floors, exercise areas, and walker paths. Polylast’s use in these areas helps eliminate mud on the surface and can be used year around. Because of Polylast Comfort & Safety Flooring’s strength, you will not have to be replacing dirt in high traffic areas.
