It is a shred from solid rubber tyres that looks like bark
Provides a very soft and squashy surface
Can be loose or bonded but is most suited for bonding
Also known as resin bounded rubber mulch
Requires only compacted soil and membrane for sub layer
No edging required
How it Works !
The coloured mulch arrives in 10kg bags and the resin in 25kg kegs
Each square metre of 50mm depth requires 20kg mulch and 4kg resin
Mix using a paddle mixer and tub, or a clean concrete mixer
The optimum mix of mulch to resin should be about 5:1 ratio

Detailed Laying Method for Bonded Mulch !
Rubber mulch and resin are delivered to site in 10kg bags mulch and 25kg kegs resin. To mix, you can use paddle mixer and tub, a clean concrete mixer or ideally a forced action mixer. It can even mix by hand avoiding contact with your skin. You will also need gloves, trowel, depth block, cloth, funnel, measuring jug, bucket and a porous membrane.
Prepare the ground, flatten the soil as best you can. Lay the membrane over the soil area. Edging can be used otherwise the sides can just sink into a “V” trench at 45 degrees.
Prepare the bonded rubber mulch mix, place 1 x 10kg bag or 2 bags if you are blending colours in the mixer and start turning. Ensure a full measure of binder from the keg goes in a measuring jug. The ratio is 5:1 by weight or 5:1 by volume (1kg = 1.1liters). Add 2kgs of resin to each 10kgs of mulch. Let the rubber and resin mix for 3-5 minutes or until an even consistency is achieved. Pour straight from the tub or via a bucket to the area being worked on.
Use a block of wood to gauge a consistent depth. It can be tampered to the ground usually to 50mm. Do not compact/squash it. A two man experienced team could install in the region of 100sq metres per day.
Caution: ensure that the mulch is dry and stays dry during curing.
