Can any of your rubber underlayment can be used with heating floors? (for example, the underlay would be directly on concrete floor in the basement, with electric heating mat over the underlay and laminate floor on top) Thank you!

Rubber underlayment is a popular choice for use underneath stone and tile floors.

We would not recommend using this directly over hardwood flooring. Please note that putting any flooring over hardwood can be damaging to the hardwood.
We live in a condo, and 2 years ago, new 5mm vinyl plank flooring was installed and glued down to the concrete gypsum floor. The flooring is in really good shape, but now the condo association wants a 5mm rubber underlay installed for noise suppression for the suite below us. Can we install your 5mm rubber underlay overtop of the existing plank flooring and install new floating locking laminate flooring over it? Or do we need to strip the 5mm vinyl planks off before installing your underlay?

Hi!! I am looking for 100 % recycled anti skid rubber material approx 5mm thick for a mat.
Our 5mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment is 100% recycled, but is not the best material for a mat. We do offer a wide range of mats that are also recycled. Depending on what you are wanting to do on the mat, determines which one would be appropriate for you. All of our rubber mats are anti-skid and can be found on our Rubber Mats page.

Tensile PSI is 90 & Compression is 30 for both the 3.2mm and the 5mm underlayment.

Rubber underlayment can be used underneath glue down cork tiles. Use our 5900 Series pressure sensitive flooring adhesive.
What is the best glue to use when you have to glue the 5MM on top of the 10MM. The plitique glue doesn't seem to be bonding the 2 layers together. is there a stronger adhesive i can use.
Our Polyurethane Adhesive would work fine for that use.

That should work fine as protection against slip.

Colin Peaty
The typical R-Value for rubber flooring in general is 1.100. Our 5mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment is a decent insulator. It is not as good as foam, but will keep any space warmer than concrete or natural stone.

Rubber underlayment is suitable for installation underneath solid hardwood. Please see our detailed installation instructions PDF for further information.

There will be an initial rubber smell to the rubber underlayment. You can open windows / air out the space until the smell is gone.

Rubber underlayment can be used outdoors underneath artificial turf. You would install it using turf nails.
Can this be used outside? I have a concrete ramp for my son who uses a wheel chair and I wondered if this would work out better if I installed it on top of that.
You can use rubber outdoors but be advised that you may experience fading over time. For wheelchair use, we'd suggest using a standard (more dense) rubber roll instead of an underlayment which is not meant to be used as a main flooring since it is less dense and meant to be covered, not walked on.

Charles Reichenbach
You can use our 5mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment as underlay under our court flooring. Adding rubber underlay under our court flooring will allow for a basketball to bounce properly at the same time provide much-needed cushion for your joints while at play.
Can it be used over hydronic radiant floor heating?
Our 5mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment can be installed over hydronic radiant floor heating. Since rubber is insulating, you may not get the full effect of the system under the underlayment. The system will not affect the floor in any way. It won't melt it or make it buckle in a weird way.

I plan to order the Mannington Realta 12" Rigid Core Vinyl Planks for my kitchen as those will be installed on top of the existing vinyl tile floor installed by building management over 13 years ago. Is it really necessary to have this underlay? I want to be able to take up the planks if I ever decide to move in approximately 10 years.
Victoria J Wefer
Since Mannington's Realta 12" Rigid Core Vinyl Planks have an attached pad, you wouldn't need to add another underlayment under your flooring.
