Rubber paving starts with a specific size of rubber crumb which is shredded recycled tires that have had all the radial metal bands removed. This rubber crumb is mixed with a specialized binder agent. This granular mix is applied to a surface, typically concrete or asphalt (but can be carefully tamped gravel mixes), in a layer of approximately one inch for driveways, sidewalks and patios. After the application, it is packed and trowelled to make a firm, smooth, and uniform surface. During the curing period the binder agent chemically fuses the individual granules of rubber crumb resulting in a continuous, flexible, rubber pavement layer (approx ¾ of inch once packed and dry) covering the underlying surface. This rubber pavement has a hard enough surface to permit vehicle traffic and the scraping off of ice while maintaining a more textured surface that is both ice and slip resistant. Rubber Paving takes advantage of the advanced technology that has been implanted into our car and truck tires. Over the past 100 years companies such as Good Year and BF Goodrich have poured millions of dollars into R&D to provide us with car and truck tires that are virtually unaffected by the environment (temperature, salt, regular wear). This is why historically recycled tires have been such a problem for land fills. The rubber does not break down. This same tire technology permits our cars to remain stationary for years at a time and also absorb incredible shocks from potholes at high speed all the while retaining the original round shape. It is this technology that permits heavy vehicles to park for extended periods on rubber paving and yet it does not thin out or crack but instead simply resumes its original flat uniform shape once the vehicle departs.
