More about Homogenous Virgin Rubber Flooring

Rubber flooring, a common flooring option, has many different uses for a myriad of settings. Rubber flooring has been utilized in areas from hospitals to data centers, offices, gymnasiums, and even in housing. Consequently, this type of resilient flooring has many different varieties, which means many different product compositions. For the scope of this Common Product, the rubber flooring considered is homogeneous virgin rubber tile/sheet for interior use. Virgin rubber is defined as rubber that is being utilized for the first time (in any setting). Other rubber flooring options utilize recycled rubber (crumb rubber), which may contain high-concern residuals that are not disclosed. Recycled flooring options were not considered for this Common Product profile. For more information on potential contaminants in tire-derived crumb rubber, see our Common Product record here. Homogeneous products are a single layer, whereas heterogeneous products are multi-layered. Rubber flooring for exterior use relies on crumb rubber as a minor or major rubber component; which, as stated previously is not the scope of the this particular Common Product. Rubber flooring requires either natural or synthetic rubber with styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) being very common. Some products may incorporate rubber granules containing other polymers, such as EPDM. Common additives include antioxidants, fillers, flame retardants, curing agents, and pigments. Some flooring products may have a factory-applied finish, but this does not appear to be common.
