When do I apply the Rebinder™
You can only rebind your playground surface when it needs to be reconditioned. Rebinding prematurely can harden the Poured In Place system. We tell our clients to do the “Shuffle test” which means scraping your feet on the rubber surface to see if you can easily dislodge the granules. It’s very important to ONLY Rebind when you see loose granules.
Each pail will cover up to 1,500 sf area. The coverage will depend on several factors, including the porousness and the general condition of the surface, and the last time the poured rubber surface has been reconditioned.
You will need the following materials:
- leaf blower, (power washer)
- paddle mixer
- drip pan
- paint roller
Look for a sunny day above 60 degrees. If it is going to rain within four hours after applying, do not rebind.
Step 1: Use a leaf blower to remove loose granulated rubber and other debris from area. If necessary, use a power washer with a wide angle nozzle and binder friendly detergent to sanitize the surface. Make sure your surface is COMPLETELY dry before continuing. Check under equipment for possible excess water and moisture
Step 2: Lay down a tarp to avoid splashing and use a paddle mixer to thoroughly mix the Rebinder™ in the pail before use. It is necessary to mix Rebinder™ before use.
Step 3: Pour Rebinder™into drip pan. Do not mix with other products or solvents.
Step 4: Use a cheap paint roller to equally distribute Rebinder™ on your poured in place surface because you will be throwing it away after installation.
Step 5: Apply pressure when applying Rebinder™ in order to make sure the coat is even and sufficient. Go over each area only one time. Do not treat Rebinder™ like paint. Multiple layers will harden your surface.
Step 6: Even though Trassig’s Rebinder™ is fast curing, secure area and allow 24 hours before use after application. If it rains 4 hours or more after application the Rebinder™ will not be affected, but it cannot rain during the application of the Rebinder™ for it to properly cure.
