Shercom Recycled Rubber Surfaces
Introduced in 1998, it was originally developed to restore existing cracked, pitted and spalled driveways by providing a new seamless rubber surface. Shercom Surfacing is comprised of recycled tire rubber. We reuse this material to create resilient surfacing for many different applications, benefitting from all the engineering focused on creating durable and long-lasting tires.Our surfaces are created by combining recycled rubber crumb with our proprietary binding agent according to a strict formula developed by Shercom. While our initial application was for driveways, the concept has now been expanded to include playgrounds, pool decks, sports courts, running tracks, sidewalks, commercial spaces, pathways, patios, decks, and trails.
Rubber Paving is durable, stable, affordable, practical, resists cracking, and retains exceptional performance characteristics even in our extreme Canadian climatic conditions.
Our surfaces are becoming so popular because they are safe, accessible, easy to clean, offer a wide range of colour options and design possibilities and they are super fun to walk, run and play on!
Our Commitment to Customer Satisfaction
Our continuing research and development efforts support our goal to ensure that each new customer should be as satisfied with their recycled rubber surface as our first driveway customers have been. That first surface was installed in 1998 and still looks like our recently installed surfaces with no cracks in the surface. Obviously the added flexibility and stability of our rubber surface helps to resist minor ground movement and meet our customer service goal.
Ideal Surfacing combines our well-equipped professional installation team with the most advanced virgin rubber compounds (TPV or EPDM) sourced from ISO certified North American or European manufacturers. With Ideal Surfacing, you get the peace of mind knowing your new rubber surface will endure for years to come and will not leach harmful sulfurs or peroxides into your environment.
Engineered for Performance
Ideal Surfacing precision rubber safety surfacing, for commercial or residential applications, can be combined with Shercom’s unique Pour-in-place playground surface as a final super-resilient wear layer or incorporated into tracks, driveways, splash parks or any other suitable surface.
Ideal Surfacing utilizes high tensile, granules created from the most advanced, UV stable polymer that is produced without sulphurs, clay fillers, phthalate plasticizers or heavy metals like Zinc. We combine these granules with a very strong proprietary, situation-specific binding agent that fuses with whatever solid substrate it is applied over to form the strongest, safest, most enduring flexible surfacing available.
