The top layer is called a "wear course" and is typically 3/8" thick and comprised of either EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer), a type of synthetic rubber, or TPV (thermoplastic vulcanized), which boasts superior color and longevity. The wear course is the layer that is seen.

There are many benefits of using poured in place rubber. It is a soft, yet durable, surface that will protect children while they play. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. There is a wide color variety with poured in place rubber. One of the coolest things about this surfacing is that you can create designs with it. Pathways can be laid in to guide children around the playground. Shapes, logos, designs, and other graphics can be put into the surfacing encouraging learning, games, and imagination. Sound can even be implemented into the surfacing adding an element of discovery and surprise.
