“It is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy” 1 Corinthians 4:2. We are stewards of planet earth. A core principle of Rubber-Cal’s philosophy is its commitment to providing eco-friendly flooring products. We only have one planet Earth to live on and Rubber-Cal believes that we should do all we can to protect and preserve it. One very important way that we can do our part is in providing environmentally friendly flooring options for consumers. Our line of “Green” flooring is made from either natural, reclaimed, or recycled rubber.

Recycled rubber flooring is desirable to have because is offers superior levels of long-term durability. This is thanks to the tire rubber that they are made from. The rubber material in tires is manufactured to endure UV rays, ozone, moisture, and physical abrasions. With this kind of durable rubber in use, our line of eco-friendly flooring products can withstand the rigors of use in areas like gyms, garages, warehouses, and many other commercial and industrial venues where the impact of heavy equipment may be present.

Eco-friendly flooring features excellent protective qualities for both people and surfacing. Rubber is a material that possesses a natural amount of grip. When your feet are on this reclaimed floor surface, they will benefit from enhanced traction. Some recycled rubber flooring also comes with traction enhancing surface designs for better anti-slip safety. In addition to protecting your footing, our sustainable flooring products also safeguard your existing floors like wood and tile from the damage that can be caused by high volumes of foot traffic or heavy equipment. With eco-friendly flooring in place, you will be sparing yourself any future unwanted repair costs. Recycled rubber flooring is great for consumers in terms of practicality. However, it is also great for the environment thanks to the materials used to make it.

The most basic kind of eco-friendly flooring material is natural rubber. Rubber is a naturally occurring substance that is produced from the sap of the Hevea brasiliensis tree. It is a very versatile material that can be used in products beyond “Green” flooring and can sometimes be mixed with synthetic rubbers in order to give a product enhanced oil and chemical resistant properties. By itself, however, it is an elastic and durable cost-effective environmentally friendly flooring option. It was also the only type of eco-conscious sustainable flooring available for a long time.

Reclaimed and recycled rubbers are made from discarded vehicle tires. Prior to 1985, the standard method of disposing these tires was to simply toss them in a landfill. According to CalRecycle, millions of these tires are disposed of every year. Unfortunately, rubber is not biodegradable and these tires would pile up over time, taking up valuable space that could be used for waste that is biodegradable. Over time, these tires become breeding grounds for vermin and disease. The effect this has on the surrounding ecology is very detrimental. When scientists began to alert manufacturers about the environmental impact that these old tire mountains were having on the environment, it was clear that something had to be done. They found their answer in recycling the rubber. Thanks to this discovery, the stage was set for the expansion of new eco-friendly flooring.

Reclaimed rubber and recycled rubber are similar but have differences in the way they are produced. Reclaimed rubber is made when tires are devulcanized and then vulcanized again, a cyclical process that makes a reclaimed floor product that tends to be smooth in texture. Recycled rubber flooring, on the other hand, is made from shredded tires. The shredded rubber material is molded back together and the result is eco-friendly flooring that is grainy in texture. Reusing these tires for use as environmentally friendly flooring frees up space for biodegradable waste in landfills, allowing the surrounding environment to “breathe” better. Best of all for producers and consumers, recycled rubber is a cost-effective choice.

Affordability matters. When compared to synthetic rubber products, recycled rubber is the clear winner. Rubber-Cal appreciates that not every budget is the same and when an eco-conscious and cost-effective reclaimed floor alternative can be offered, we are happy to provide it. Eco-friendly flooring helps ease the burden on both wallets and the environment.

We at Rubber-Cal try to do our part in reducing waste in the environment by using eco-conscious rubber whenever and wherever we can. Our line of eco-friendly flooring can provide durable protection for a wide variety of applications. Our “Green” flooring is affordable and will help you contribute to reducing the amount of waste in the ecosystem. Now that the benefits of sustainable flooring are available to you, do your part to keep our planet clean.
