Base Layer Poured in Place Rubber Repair Patch kit
-Base Layer Patch Kit to repair the impact attenuation layer of playground rubberized surfaces
-Covers approximately 5 sqft at a 2” depth.
-Easy, DIY application
Our poured in place rubber base layer patch kits are designed to repair damages that extend beyond the wear layer into the impact attenuation layer. The depth of the base layer depends on the height of your playground equipment. The most common depth for the base layer is 2″. Our Base Layer Patch Kit covers approximately 5 square feet at a depth of 2″. Your kit will include 10 pounds of SBR rubber buffings and 2 pounds of glue (aromatic binder). After applying the base layer kit, you should apply the Wear Layer Patch Kit on top. Caution: You should never patch base layer with wear layer material because the EPDM granules that make up the wear layer do not have the impact attenuation properties that the SBR rubber strands do.
