EPDM news from the Olympics

Everybody who has an interest in sports has seen the mostly reddish running tracks in stadiums, athletics facilities and sport halls. But very few know that an EPDM granulate produces the special properties of these floors.

Granulated, colored EPDM granules are mixed with polyurethane binders and troweled or sprayed onto concrete, asphalt, screenings, interlocking brick, wood etc. to create a non-slip, soft, porous safety surface for wet-deck areas such as pool decks or playgrounds and a major use is also for running tracks at the Olympic stadiums.
