ProEquus® WE40™ Multi-Use Arena Base System
Material Specifications and Technical Data Sheet

Product description: Flexible mats (120cm W x 83cm L x 4cm H) largely consisting of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).  PVC is virtually trouble-free (in comparison to other materials) during temperature changes, since it expands equally in all directions, and contracts into the same shape and size (e.g. no “memory” as with many plastics).
The elements are relatively pliable and flexible, UV-stabilized and freeze-tolerant, durable with a long lifespan, do not decay or deteriorate, and are non-polluting.
Resistant to acids and leaching compounds (including marine or road salts, ammonia, acid rain etc.) as well as against alcohol or similar solvents, and ammonia from urea. 100% recyclable! (per Environmental Certificate).
ProEquus® WE40™ has been proven to contain no PCB, nor any other pollutants for animals or groundwater, etc.

Uses: Footing & flooring stabilization in horse facilities (e.g. in riding and tournament places) and/or general animal husbandry, pasture entrances, paths and walkway to paddocks, etc.). The tongue-and-groove system makes the mats easy to assemble and disassemble.
Due to the straight edges, the mats nest against each other snugly.Installation: ProEquus® WE40™ may be trimmed to fit using portable hand tools (saws) or power hand tools (circular saws, etc. It is not necessary to pre-cut the pieces, they may be trimmed-to-fit easily during installation, thus saving time and energy.
