Adhesive, Cleaner and Tools are all essential for proper installation and care of your rubber gym flooring. Not all rubber flooring requires sealant or adhesive, but if you are purchasing products that do, such as rolled rubber or interlocking flooring tiles that are made from recycled rubber, then it is important to know which products will best address your requirements.
Rubber Flooring Adhesive, such as Chemrex CX-941, is a trowel on permanent adhesive used to adhere rolled rubber flooring to concrete or wood sub-floors. For a less permanent bond, Pressure Sensitive Seaming Tape, or “Carpet Tape”, works well and is more Do It Yourself friendly. It also allows the flooring to be pulled up at a later date so it can be moved to another location. Sikaflex Seam Sealant is used for sealing together the edges of long rolls of rolled rubber. This creates a barrier that prevents liquids from mops or pets from seeping down onto the sub-floor.
Rubber Flooring Sealant is used to seal the “nooks and crannies” in recycled flooring caused by the crumb rubber. Vulcanized or virgin rubber products have a smoother, non-porous surface and do not need sealant. But using a sealant on recycled flooring can make for easier mopping and cleaning, especially in dog daycare facilities. A neutral PH flooring cleaner can also be used every few months to keep your flooring area smelling fresh.
