Ecore has introduced its newest Ecore Athletic surface: HydroGrip Motivate. This engineered surface features a slip-resistant safety floor surface layer that is fusion bonded to a 5-millimeter vulcanized composition rubber (VCR) base layer (Motivate) using Ecore’s patented itsTRU technology.
The surface’s VCR backing, called Motivate, provides a force reduction of 11.9 percent and energy restitution of 66.6 percent for optimal performance and safety. Motivate also eliminates the need for an underlayment.
Available in six colors, HydroGrip Motivate is suitable for wet areas, locker rooms and bathrooms where safety is a top priority. This easy-to-maintain surface is also hygienic due to its heat-welded installation.
HydroGrip Motivate features Ecore’s patented itsTRU technology, a proprietary manufacturing process that starts with rubber that is diverted from landfills and incineration and upcycled into vulcanized composition rubber (VCR) using a pressurized process that fusion bonds the VCR to virtually any flooring surface. The innovative technology develops and captures energy so flooring surfaces can absorb force while returning usable energy back to the body.
