Concern over Cancer risk from tire rubber

Although these reports have not offered any science-based evidence to reinforce these claims, actual risk or not, some users are concerned about tire rubber infill. At Sports Labs USA we offer testing that can show users that the proposed infill meets standards for Heavy Metals and PAHs.
