The Design Process
The team of designers’ objective was to come up with a product that contributed to ergonomic, acoustic and safety issues while providing a sterile environment and performance capabilities for heavy-load and high-traffic areas.
The groundbreaking NadaRx flooring solution was designed with its vulcanized composition rubber backing to elevate performance by providing ergonomic, acoustic and safety support to reduce joint stress and muscle fatigue, diminish noise and reduce the risk of injury from falls. Including heat-welded seams that prevent bacteria or pathogens from accumulating, NadaRx ensures a sterile environment. Its dense, oil-free surface resists dirt, making it easy to maintain and clean. The product’s resilience means it remains beautiful without the need for polishing or buffing, and it’s durable against stains, scratches, heavy rolling and static loads. Nada Rx embodies the highest standards of sustainability and cleanliness.
As an industry leader in recycled products technology, the company’s products are manufactured in state-of-the-art American production facilities where the company focuses on and strives to continually improve efficiency and responsible resource management. Its vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities include grinding, screening, removal of stone, wood, paper, fluff, fiber and other materials from scrap tire rubber to produce exacting specifications that meet or exceed customers internal, external and ASTM specifications.
How the company manufactures its products goes beyond recycling, it’s upcycling. When the company transforms rubber tires into its performance VCR base layer, it’s able to elevate those tires’ attributes so its surfaces provide more safety, ergonomics, and acoustics. It has developed energy-efficient manufacturing processes that do not include smokestacks, use minimal water and little or no heat, and reuse its scrap to minimize waste.

As a low-VOC product, NadaRx will help contribute to diverting more than 300 million pounds of end-of-life rubber from landfills this year and avoid more than 3,300 tons of CO2 emissions. The product is manufactured with an innovative flooring material, which is made from natural minerals and pure thermoplastic polymers and is also free from PVC, plasticizers, phthalates, halogens, chlorines and heavy metals. NadaRx passes CA01350 VOC testing, demonstrating its ability to promote clean and healthy indoor air.
