Tire Veneer

A Favorite Resilient Floor Material

Tire Veneer has many uses and design advantages. Tire Veneer is available in rolls or tiles and in standard or premium grade.


Tire Veneer is probably the most popular resilient flooring material in use today. Like another of our resilient flooring materials Flexisurf, Tire Veneer comes from the automotive industry.  It is based on what is called buffings, which are small granules of rubber that are removed from the old tire tread that is going to be retreaded. Thus, buffings are a by-product of a tire recycling effort and this by-product is then used to make Tire Veneer sheets, rolls and tiles. Rubber tires are made from SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber). Polyurethane is used to bind the rubber granules together into a strong but slightly porous material. The most basic and least expensive color of Tire Veneer is black. To add some visual interest to black Tire Veneer, colored EPDM rubber is added to the black tire buffings before they are all bound together with polyurethane. The EPDM rubber is not recycled, which means that only the solid black Tire Veneer contains 100% post-consumer recycled rubber. EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. For colors, our standard is 20% EPDM so that the material still contains a significantly high percentage of post-consumer content.

Tire Veneer is made in the USA. The dry rubber granules are blended together with a polyurethane binder and then formed through a process of heat and pressure into 2 basic forms, block or cylinder. Premium Tire Veneer comes from blocks. These blocks are about a square yard in size and several inches thick. Sheets are sliced off the top of the block in various thicknesses. This is a slower low volume process but results in a perfectly flat sheet. By far the most cost-effective method of production is the cylinder. A cylinder is about 4 feet in diameter and 4 feet long. It is positioned against a peeling knife and the entire cylinder is peeled in one operation. A cylinder peeled into 6 mm (1/4″) sheet will yield 385 linear feet of Tire Veneer.

Finally, this versatile material is available in twelve standard colors and almost unlimited custom colors, EPDM percentages, and additives such as EPDM dust and cork. The standard Tire Veneer comes in 4-foot widths with 3-foot widths and square cut and interlocking tiles as custom options. Premium Tire Veneer in the same standard colors and is available in 3′ x 3′ straight cut and interlocking tiles.
