Rubber granulates and powders are strong, resilient and resistant to mechanical, climatological, chemical and bacterial influences. That makes them a perfect material for use in sports facilities and floors. In addition, there are a number of other applications in which the powders and granulates have a good track record. One example of their use is in rubber tiles for childrens’ playgrounds or special pavements, but also in rubber mats that are used in the agricultural sector and the hospitality industry, among others. Their use in the industrial production of shoes and gumboots and other consumer goods has risen sharply. And that also applies to the construction of houses, public utilities and roads, and in civil engineering.
