Athletic surfaces are constructed using a polymer binder such as styrene-butadiene latex which adheres well to the rubber and other particles. Emulsion polymers provide adhesion as well as flexibility and strength for tennis courts, running tracks, and playgrounds. Carboxylation improves adhesion while butadiene provides elasticity and styrene adds strength. MCP has a long history of providing products for this market.
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.
