Dflect EPDM are manufactured from virgin rubber only. As no recycled (SBR) rubber is used within the EPDM range a wider choice of colour is available as well as our mixed colour options. The EPDM tile has a near identical drainage channel design as Dflect Recycled Tiles.
As the EPDM option contains only virgin rubber they are a more expensive product but they do create a unique surface finish. They are also a more UV stable product and perform slightly better on flammability and smoke classification.
EPDM tiles are not subject to carbon leaching so we advise the use of EPDM tiles where very young children will be on the surface of the tiles.
EPDM is an abbreviation of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. Our EPDM tiles have a top layer as per your colour choice. The remainder of the tile will be rubber in black.
We also have the ability to manufacture in other EPDM colours so if you have a special colour in mind please let us know and we will confirm availability.
