ABOUT RUBBER FLOORING
Natural Rubber is an elastic hydrocarbon polymer that occurs naturally as a milky colloidal suspension, or latex, in the sap of rubber trees. It can also be artificially synthesised. Rubber was used by the Maya more than 3000 years ago, to create bouncing recreational balls, and to produce temporary shoes by dipping their feet in latex.
One of the many current uses of rubber is as a flooring material, particularly in athletic areas such as gyms and sports halls. Rubber flooring is available in sheet or tile form, and may be made from re-cycled materials. It is also available as interlocking rubber flooring tiles, which can be fitted with beveled edge and corner pieces. Sheet rubber may be heat welded to produce continuous rubber flooring.
