Since 1972, Humane has used recycled rubber to produce our mats and flooring. That's 38 yrs of experience. What are some of the advantages of using Recycled Rubber Flooring?
Humane Manufacturing only uses freshly buffed tire treads to grind and vulcanize into mats and flooring products. That means that the recycled rubber we use has never touched a landfill or other hazardous area where contaminants could be present. Because we do not use chopped up tire pieces, no wire or nylon fabric cords that are unhealthy to breathe are present in our materials. Other types of "crumb" rubber can contain wire and fibers that are harmful, and rubber tires that have set in landfills can become contaminated by harmful gasses created by them just sitting there. Humane rubber is CLEAN GREEN, for your peace of mind.
Other Recycled Rubber flooring has very little actual recycled content in it. Layered rubber flooring or laminate flooring is comprised of a bottom layer (where the recycled rubber is) and a wear layer (that is normally virgin rubber or PVC).
These layered or laminate rubber floor products also take more petroleum to manufacture, and are bonded together. They are also high maintenance because the top wear layer is not scuff resistant.
Humane Recycled Rubber flooring is solid throughout the mat and vulcanized under heat and pressure. That means more recycled content, no wear layer that breaks down, and takes less petroleum to manufacture.
Photo on the left is freshly buffed tire tread that is free from wire and nylon fibers. Also because it has never touched a landfill, it has not been contaminated by any methane gasses that can build up from stockpile tires or other contaminants that can be found in a scrap yard. That's why we are Clean Green. The photo on the right is of a finished Humane mat.
