What is Wetpour Repair?

Wetpour Repair

Wetpour Repair is the process of repairing any damage to your playground EPDM rubber crumb surface. It is made up of small rubber granules that are bonded together with polyurethane resin, and then poured over tarmac to create a soft, safe and long-lasting surface for children to play on. This impact-absorbing surface means that even if a child falls on the floor, they will not be as bruised and marked up as they would be if they fell on concrete.

Like any playground, it’s important that wet pour is regularly cleaned and that the edges are kept in good condition. This is because if the wet pour shrinks then it will begin to pull away from the edge of the playground and can develop into a large tripping hazard for children. To prevent this from happening, we offer a service to carry out perimeter repairs for our clients. This involves cutting back the surfacing and then filling it in using a contrasting colour band to make the repair look more attractive.

Alternatively, we can supply a DIY wetpour repair kit that you can use to do smaller localized repairs yourself. This kit contains a bucket of rubber granules and polyurethane binder that you can mix yourself to create a smooth, seamless repair. We recommend that you always follow the instructions carefully to ensure that you get the best result.

Unlike rubber tiles, wet-pour surfaces are dual-layered and have a shock-pad base that reduces the impact of falls. Wet-pour flooring also offers traction and stability, making it ideal for gyms, workouts, and exercise. Wet-pour rubber floors also have a longer lifespan than other types of flooring. However, like any type of flooring, it can harden over time, so we advise that you apply a topcoat every two years to keep the floor soft and safe.
