In a typical sports surface application, Genan granulate is used for the elastic, shock-absorbing base layer under a colored top layer.
Genan’s high-quality rubber granulate is used for athletic tracks, running tracks and smaller fields for e.g. basketball, as well as tennis courts and other sports fields.
Athletic tracks are often made in-situ. Rubber granules are mixed with polyurethane, and the track or pitch is built on site.
Rubber granulate for track applications is offered in two standard sizes: MEDIUM and COARSE. Particle size distribution is important as it influences performance as well as installation costs. A poor quality product contains too much dust and textile and will often require more costly binding material to achieve the same properties.
