Wetpour Repair

Wetpour Repair is the process of repairing a wetpour safety surface when it starts to shrink and pull away from the edges. This can happen with wetpour installations of any colour and any depth. It tends to be more noticeable around any day joints or graphics installed and can be a tripping hazard so is important that it is repaired straight away. We can carry out a wetpour recap without ripping up the existing installation to make your area look as good as new again. This process involves cutting back the surfacing and resurfacing it in a different colour to give it a fresh design.

Case Study: Successful Wetpour Repair Projects

Performing regular inspections of your rubber playground flooring will help you to spot damage early on and get it repaired straight away. This will help to keep your surface in top condition and mean that it lasts for longer.

While wet pour is a very durable surface, it will eventually start to harden over time and extreme weather conditions can impact this. If you want to extend the lifespan of your rubber surface, you can consider a cap coat every two years to give it a fresh new finish and keep it soft.

You can buy wetpour repair kits that contain a perfect ratio of EPDM rubber granules and polyurethane resin binder glue to do this yourself. It is best to leave the installation of wetpour surfacing to a professional though as you will need special tools and knowledge about mixing the binder with the rubber granules.
