From corporate headquarters to retail stores, rubber is gaining popularity as a more eco-friendly flooring option. New innovative and sustainable ways to use rubber are now available, including terrazzo-looks, rubber cork hybrid, and vulcanized rubber + cork styling. Let’s discuss how this resilient material impacts the planet.
Sustainable Sourcing + Manufacturing
Black granules in our rubber are sourced from post-consumer commercial truck tires. The colored granules are made from high quality EPDM, a synthetic rubber. These are sourced from Germany because they have the lowest VOC, volatile organic compounds, in the market. This means the rubber products Siena supplies achieve FloorScore® certification for indoor air emission standards. Then, during the manufacturing process, water jets reuse their water while slicing rubber blocks into beautiful flooring.
Rubber can also be combined with other sustainable materials. In addition to our recycled rubber, Siena offers a rubber cork hybrid and a vulcanized rubber with cork flecks. Cork is a rapidly renewable hard surface option that is increasing in popularity. Therefore, both sustainable materials combined provide a refreshing visual with environmental attributes.
Sustainable sourcing, manufacturing, and product combinations create a better environmental story for showing rubber to your clients. Siena will continue raising the bar with the aesthetics and environmental impact of this amazing material - RUBBER!
