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 4170 is a self-crosslinking carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion that has a medium-firm hand with outstanding strength properties.
