Beijing Olympics. They also make a product called JRex, which is a product made
from recycled plastic and wood chips. Polymer safety mats come in 3 thicknesses 45,
75, and 110 millimeters. The bottom layer is scrap tyre pieces and the top layer is a
polymer. The polymer is a selling point as it can come in a range of colors.
