- Wire free rubber mulch: For landscaping or playground pavement use.
- Wire free and fiber free rubber crumb: Many athletic fields and sporting surfaces utilize crumb rubber as a soft and absorbent layer. Numerous rubber modified asphalt roadways and rubber sealants also use crumb rubber as a main infredient.
