Wet Pour Surfacing Shrinkage Edge Repairs

Wet Pour band perimeter shrinkage repairs are very common especially on older wetpour surfaces. EPDM rubber crumb is prone to shrinkage and expansion in adverse weather conditions especially the older the surface gets as the rubber loses its elasticity. The shrinkage of the rubber usually pulls away from the perimeter edge leaving a gap which often forms a trip hazard or an unsightly place for weed growth. These common issues are easily rectified with a wet pour band repair.

  • Maintenance repairs all to EN1177
  • Rejuvenate old wet pour with a colour band repair


Band repairs can easily be carried out by our specialist surfacing installation team. The perimeter shrinkage usually needs to be cut back so that the existing rubber crumb has a sharp edge to install up against too. The exposed stone base works is redressed, rubber edges primed with the void then being filled with  a contrasting EPDM wetpour rubber band often making the area look as a new graphic has been installed. Contrasting colours are used as it is very hard to match colours in especially where existing surfaces have been exposed to wear and tear for a few years.



Wet Pour rubber safety surfacing is recycled bonded rubber, mixed on site using special equipment and laid to exacting standards as required under EN1177. The base layer of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) is laid at various thicknesses to obtain the critical fall height required.  A top layer is recycled Black EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Di Monomer) is then applied to the base rubber to form a wearing course as standard where no colour is specified.  Virgin rubber can be supplied if requested.



All of our professional teams are CSCS (construction skills certification scheme) card holders with many years’ experience installing resin bound systems.
