Do I put anything on top of Corbro?
The comfort level is in the Corbro sheet, however in applications such as stabling a layer of bedding is required solely for the wetness. First start with 6-8 inches of bedding and reduce this level to suit horse if there is constant wetness then increase your level.  

Is Corbro non-slip?

Yes.

Does Corbro require maintenance?

Yes. Corbro consists of 2 layers. The bond between these 2 layers is engineered to take vertical (up-down) forces. Lateral forces should be avoided. There may be occasions where a lateral pressure eg pawing or gaps between sheets may cause the top layer to come away. This will only occur if the product is installed or has been shifted to a postion( trapped bedding) where a horse can access the edges. If this occurs, general repair of the sheets is required (see below).Leaving a small lifting of rubber will result in a large delamination and a potential  Hazard .

**** Gaps between sheets can trap bedding pushing the trapped bedding laterally between the 2 layers causing delamination. Always insure sheets are compressed together with no gaps and if bedding migrates between the sheet remove immediately  ****

Does direct sunlight effect Corbro?

Yes with closed cell and rubber products there will be always be expansion and contraction. Always make sure your cobro product has not been in direct sunlight 12 hrs prior to cutting/trimming).

How do I repair damaged Corbro sheets?

Always use a premium contact adhesive for rubber and foam. Ensure the area is cleaned. Sandpaper surface area before bonding together. Always check sheets for small cuts or delamination and repair immediately if required.

When bonding use a contact adhesive that will have a curing time that will allow you to move sheets during install (compression fit) and always check the solvent bonding requirements  (Corbro is "closed cell"  avoid trapping solvents)  .
