Our green tee mats are made of synthetic rubbers which are all made from oil
Regarding the glue, our manufacturer recommends using 3M
nitrile high performance rubber and gasket adhesive to bond BR, SBR and nitrile
rubber to metal and woods (not sure about concrete or carpet).
Our company also recommends using basic Gorilla glue but keep in mind that it expands so keep that in mind when putting down the glue, a little goes a long way. It does stick to everything.
