TecnoTileTM has created a low-density polyethylene (LDPE), which is easier to use. It has the versatility to be installed and removed at will. Two size tiles are used to create the perfect court, using the smaller one for boundary lines. No painting is ever needed, and it is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. This softer material can help prevent fatigue and possible injuries, which are usually caused by playing on harder plastic tile surface materials (HDP, HDPE, HIPP). Use it for temporary or permanent renovations or installations.
In this picture, game lines for a synthetic turf field are being bonded to seaming tape using NORDOT® Adhesive. These one-part curing urethanes are formulated for year-round use in all types of outdoor environments (hot, cold, damp, dry, windy, etc.) so you don't have to wait for ideal conditions. Their high green strength (grab) helps avoid installation problems such as "seam curl" and "wind lift."
