Running Track Binders

Application Description

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.
