Poured in Place Surfacing (PIP) is a seamless rubber safety surface that is mixed and installed on site. It is a two part system consisting of a base or impact layer, typically ground rubber made from scrap car or truck tires called SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber), and a wear layer that is manufactured colored Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer rubber (EPDM). A moisture cured polyurethane binder is added to bond the rubber together. This system is known for its low maintenance, custom designs, accessibility and longevity; however it is also the most expensive surfacing product on the market today
"When these types of surfaces start to fail, calling a contractor for repairs can get very expensive", explains Debbie Siebert, President of Discount Playground Supply ."Our Fast Patch Wear Layer Kits have saved our customers thousands of dollars in repair costs, but many playgrounds need repair to the base layer as well. Fast Patch Base Layer repair kit is a perfect complement to our Fast Patch Wear Layer repair kit, as maintenance crews are now able to patch just about any damaged area".
Both Fast Patch Wear and Fast Patch Base products contain the proper type and amounts of rubber along with the correct proportions of binder. If too much binder is used the system becomes too hard and can fail the head impact criteria. Conversely, if there is too little binder used, the system will disintegrate quickly.
The wear layer kit contains enough material to patch six square feet at a one half inch depth, the base layer repairs slightly less than four square feet at a two inch depth. There is a How to Repair Poured in Place Surfacing video on You Tube http://youtu.be/
