Rubber playing surfaces

Outdoor playing surfaces made from the latest generation of synthetic rubber stand out for their high level of comfort, safety and high resistance to wear. Playing surfaces are made from very high quality synthetic rubber, natural mineral fillers and eco-compatible pigments which make the surfaces highly functional, very strong and durable over the years.

Installation of athletics tracks using Adesilex G19

For athletics tracks made from rolls of synthetic rubber, polyurethane adhesives must be used which have the capacity to adhere to the substrate, normally made from a layer of bitumen cementitious conglomerate.

For this type of application, Mapei has developed specific adhesives such as Adesilex G19 and Adesilex G20, which have been used to make numerous athletics tracks for the most prestigious sporting events, such as the Olympic Games.

These adhesives have the capacity of adhering perfectly to both the bitumen substrate and the synthetic rubber coating, and at the same time offer excellent resistance to tangential stresses transmitted to the underlying substrate during races, and so help athletes reach optimum performance levels.

“We were very happy with the work they’d done for us previously, and their pricing was good.

Nothing was a problem for them. Some suppliers will come to you with a list of issues – but Topcoat just gets on with it. They work around any problems, and come up with solutions themselves.

We’ve now got a floor that’s purpose-designed for our industry, and that meets all industry standards.”
