Thank you very much for your answer.
I was wondering if black styrene-butadiene rubber (McMaster-Carr Part
Number 8634K11, see http://www.mcmaster.com/ ) would provide an
equivalent to the Toyo material. For less than US$ 11.00, you could
cover a mini sumo ring with an easily obtained, standard material, that
looks like it would provide good traction.
