This EPDM playground surface failed in just three months.
As you can see from these before and after photos from the Middle East, the surface has deteriorated rapidly, with the rubber granules fading and hardening due to UV weathering.
The playground surface is currently being replaced with our Rosehill TPV® rubber granules which will last for years to come.
Over the years Rosehill TPV® has been installed in some of the sunniest places on Earth. Its outstanding UV stability delivers high-quality, long lasting results – with colours remaining brighter and surfaces softer over time.
Manufactured in the UK, Rosehill TPV® is the world’s most advanced rubber granule, specifically developed and rigorously tested to stand the test of time. Its unique chemistry, high quality raw materials, and advanced manufacturing processes ensure consistent granules that deliver unrivalled UV resistance and long-lasting elasticity.
