Surface Preparation

1. Surfaces must be structurally sound, dry, clean, and free of dirt, moisture, loose particles, oil, grease, asphalt, tar, paint, wax, rust, waterproofing or curing and parting compounds, membrane materials or other substances that may affect adhesion.

2. On metal surfaces, remove scale, rust or other coatings to expose a bright white surface. Aluminum window frames are frequently coated with a clear lacquer that must be removed before the application of CHEMREX® CX-948.

3. On concrete or stone, or other masonry surfaces, clean by grinding, sandblasting or wirebrushing to expose a sound surface free of contamination and laitance.

4. On wood surfaces, the surface must be clean and sound. Scrape away paint to bare wood.


CHEMREX® CX-948 bonds well to most substrates; however, it is the user’s responsibility to check the adhesion of the cured adhesive on specific substrates.


1. Apply by caulking gun or trowel.

2. Wearing gloves during application is highly recommended. Once material has cured it cannot be removed.

3. Because of the high strength of CHEMREX® CX-948, do not apply it as heavily as you would a conventional adhesive. Cut the smallest possible opening in the spout to render the appropriate-sized bead. Be certain to fill all gaps between materials.

4. Use mechanical fasteners to hold materials in place until adhesive has fully cured.


CHEMREX® CX-948 forms a tenacious bond overnight.

Firm set: 1 – 2 hours

Handleable: 16 hours

What is Vulcanization?

Vulcanization is the process of transforming raw rubber into a durable cured material through cross-linking of polymer chains under high heat and pressure.

How is Vulcanized Flooring Made?

End-of-life tires are recycled into tire crumb rubber, which is molded and vulcanized under high heat and pressure to create the final product.

  • Vulcanized rubber flooring is highly durable and dense with a strong bond between fine crumb rubber particles.
  • It's non-porous, resisting moisture absorption from ice, drinks, cleaning liquids, and perspiration.
  • Unlike polyurethane rubber, it's up to 20 times less absorbent, making maintenance easier as liquids stay on the surface.
  • Its non-porous nature inhibits bacterial growth, reducing the risk of infections.
  • Third-party testing confirms vulcanized rubber flooring eliminates 99.5% of microbial build-up with simple cleaning.


Vulcanized rubber gym flooring offers a multitude of benefits for your gym. Its superior durability makes it ideal for high-traffic areas and heavy-duty workouts, including weightlifting and cardio exercises. This resilience stems from the vulcanization process, which enhances the strength and elasticity of the rubber.

Vulcanized rubber flooring provides an excellent grip and stable surface, reducing the risk of slips and falls during workouts, contributing to a safer exercise environment. Its high-density structure also ensures excellent impact absorption, protecting your gym's subfloors from damage due to dropped weights.

This type of flooring is resistant to moisture and easy to clean, making gym maintenance simpler. It's also available in various colours and patterns, allowing you to customize your gym's aesthetic.

Our gym flooring is made from vulcanized virgin rubber. It is recycled and making it an eco-friendly choice for your gym.

Foam and rubber gym flooring tiles cater to different fitness needs. Foam tiles, with their softness, are ideal for floor exercises like sit-ups and planks, or for creating safe play areas for children. However, if you plan to install cardio or strength training equipment such as treadmills, weight machines, dumbbells, barbells, or squat racks, we highly recommend our Stamina gym flooring. Its durability and stability provide the perfect lifting surface for exercises like deadlifts, squats, and bench presses. Additionally, rubber gym flooring offers a stable base for cardio and strength machines, ensuring they remain sturdy and don't leave imprints on the floor beneath, no matter how much weight is applied. This ensures that your underlying floor is always protected.

To figure out the amount of Gym Flooring you'll need, simply measure the length and width of your desired gym area. This calculation will give you the floor coverage area. Please also consider factors such as your existing floor type, room shape, room temperature, and even provide cost-effective layout suggestions.
