Wipe-Out Stain Blocker is a concentrated acrylic latex stain blocking primer that provides exceptional adhesion and stain blocking properties as a preparation for the installation of athletic surfaces, as well as existing acrylic surfaces. This product can help prevent the formation of unsightly rust spots that can detract from the appearance of a new court. The product is available in conveniently sized 30- and 55-gallon drums. It is easy to apply with a 50-to 70-durometer rubber squeegee and takes just two hours per coat to dry for most applications, depending upon local weather conditions.
Synthetic Turf Infill Containment System (Sportsfield Specialties)
Sportsfield’s Pedestrian and Equipment Synthetic Turf Infill Containment Systems are designed to be installed in the access areas of a synthetic turf field to capture the infill and other potential contaminants as people and equipment exit the playing surface. The pedestrian version incorporates brush assemblies designed to remove infill from cleats as athletes walk across them, and the equipment version uses heavy-duty galvanized steel grates that allow maintenance equipment and emergency vehicles to be parked on them while the infill is removed using air or water. The infill is contained within the bottom of the trays and can easily be removed using a vacuum. The trays are modular and can be installed in a variety of configurations to meet the needs of a specific project.
