Ultimate RB has been manufacturing EPDM rubber for use in running tracks, playgrounds, flooring and a myriad of other applications since 1989. Our process begins with formulation development and the procurement of quality raw materials. Then we proceed with mixing, curing and granulating. This is a highly demanding and technical process that requires strict adherence to quality control standards at each step. Because we do all of this in our facility that is registered to the internationally recognized ISO-9001 quality standard, we can offer product quality and consistency unmatched by any other supplier.

In addition to quality assurance Ultimate RB provides value in several other ways. From a technical standpoint we can modify our formulations to meet the varying physical properties that our customers require. From an aesthetic standpoint we offer over 100 different colors. We can also develop custom colors to meet any need, and we can provide a wide range of granule sizes from small to large. Finally, from a logistics/cost standpoint we offer many of the more popular colors at several strategic warehouse locations across the country.

With this combination of quality control, technical assistance, product variety and logistical savings Ultimate RB can provide an optimal EPDM rubber product for your application.

Poured In Place

EPDM rubber granules serve as the durable and visually appealing top layer on poured in place playground surfaces, and Ultimate RB is the only vertically integrated supplier of this material in the United States.  With all aspects of formulation and manufacturing conducted in-house in our ISO 9001 registered facility, we can offer product quality and consistency that no competitor can match.

All of our EPDM formulations are peroxide cured to ensure better cross-link density, weathering characteristics and physical properties.  The peroxide cure system also eliminates problems of compatibility with some urethane binders that can be encountered with sulfur cure systems.

While most poured in place playground surfaces are made from a handful of standard colors, Ultimate RB has a multitude of colors available for use in this application.  We can also develop custom colors per your specification.

In addition to EPDM granules Ultimate RB can provide one stop shopping for many poured in place playground surfaces through a program jointly offered with our affiliate Marchem Corporation.  EPDM granules and urethane binder products can be shipped together on one truck from several locations across the country to ensure timely delivery and reduced shipping costs.  We also have recycled SBR in strand form available for sale from our facility in Ohio.
