A full 3 layer polyurethane system laid insitu on a prepared asphalt base.
This system conforms to the latest IAAF specifications and is designed for longevity with the minimum of maintenance requirements and has excellent performance characteristics even under extremes of climate and temperature.
The Polytan PUR system promotes high standards of performance from the athletes and is designed and formulated to be biomechanically “user friendly”, thereby reducing the risk of injuries to athletes.
The uniform foot feel and comfort is due to the multi-layered full polyurethane and rubber system which is laid insitu on site, and results in a flexible and resilient homogeneous surface.
The granular textured finish provides a slip resistant surface which also allows for the quick and efficient dissipation of surface water permitting the athletes to perform to the highest levels despite wet and inclement weather conditions.
Due to the nature of the materials used and the method of construction of the system, the resilience and elasticity reduces impact noise and provides “user comfort”.
The Polytan PUR system comprises of ultra-violet light and aging resistant materials which increase the longevity and overall performance characteristics of the running track.
Both at the 2002 European Athletics Championships in Munich and also at the previous European Championships, in 1998 in Budapest, it was the surface of choice preferred by the IAAF from amongst a range of competitors.
