Modern sports surfaces like rubberized running tracks and tennis courts are expected to have excellent resilience plus durability to the elements. Flexibility is required even when temperatures are low.
A carboxylated styrene-butadiene latex polymer is a good choice for a binder formulation as it will adhere well to rubber and other particles of varying sizes. Butadiene provides elasticity while the styrene component adds strength.
Rovene 4125 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer recommended for applications where a primer-sealer that provides adhesion between asphalt and other various surface treatments is needed.
Rovene 4176 is a medium soft, carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion that can be used with a variety of fillers and additives to customize the desired application properties.
Rovene 4076 is a medium-firm, carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion recommended for use in architectural coatings and interior primers for dry wall application where low perm ratings are required.
