Corporate logos and design inlays, professionally installed, look fantastic in rubber.
Increase the value of your home and add great curb appeal.
Shock absorption and enhanced safety are the main reasons to choose rubber surfacing:
Minimizing injuries and concerns about slipping means more fun and less stress for everyone. It is a safety advantage for users and visitors whether you have an indoor gym, commercial gym, or a pool.
It can be made waterproof when a membrane component is added.
Using rubber surfacing at your rental property’s entryways and patios is a great promotional safety feature. Hazardous sharp edges can be moulded and softened, making it safe for running and excited children. Dropped objects are less likely to break.
Chemical additive concerns for humans, animals, and the environment have been studied:
Governments and universities have studied chemical additives. The results are well documented to show no negative effects in the added chemicals and rubber in a cured state. As with many chemicals, when in their liquid state, if allowed to enter our waterways, indeed causes harm.

Ontario Specialty Coatings only mixes what product is needed for your project to ensure there is no product waste. If too much is mixed by accident, the leftover product is allowed to harden, and no health risks are associated.
As an aside, allow your wall and house paint to harden and throw away your paint rollers where they become inert. Do not let the plastic chemicals enter our waterways where it causes much damage to fish and wildlife and humans who rely on our lakes for drinking water.
Low and only occasional maintenance is required:
Rubber paving or rubber surfacing is very durable, and repairs are few because of its tensile strength. If maintenance is required, it is relatively easy to do.
An additional topcoat application protects the colours from Ultra Violet (UV) rays.
Rubber paving/rubber surfacing is easy to clean with a power washer.
The rubber surfacing layers are held together with pliable binding agents, a physical trait that makes it impervious to our winters’ freeze and thaws.
