As urban areas grow and the average land size decreases, there has been an increase in the demand for safe and dedicated recreational areas. Elastan® is used for playgrounds as a binder for rubber crumbs. The ‘soft-fall’ or wet-pour’ surface makes it much safer for our kids to play. Redox is the Australian distributor for Elastan® by BASF.

Elastan® is MDI-based (Methylenediphenyl diisocyanate) and is commercially available in the form of one and two component systems. Elastan® is eco-friendly with a fine-tunned open time and curing speed.
