Sporturf Tech Tip #8 Adhesive Uses and Guidance

Adhesive is an important part of the synthetic turf install process.

When using an adhesive to install synthetic turf, take a minute and read the adhesive manufacturer’s recommendations and specifications.  Doing this beforehand will help better prepare you for the upcoming installation.  Information such as:

  • any prep needed for the adhesive (if any).
  • Recommended tools (trowel size, rollers).
  • amount of coverage per container.
  • cure time.
  • Limitations due to temperature (hot or cold).
  • Limitations due to moisture/humidity.

Having and knowing this information before you get to the jobsite can prove invaluable and save you time, product and money.

This information would prove usefull for projects involving custom on deck circles , logos, halos, and home plate stance mats. Custom on deck circles allow you to show off your team colors or logo while reducing your field maintenance at the same time. With synthetic turf, your field will always look professional, and your hitters will consistently warm up in the right areas.

Stance mats have become one of the most widely used practice aids for baseball teams. They are perfect for outdoor batting practice and for use in batting cages.

One of the best ways to inspire your team, impress your supporters, and earn respect from your competition is to outfit your field with a custom halo from Sporturf.

Home plate stance mats have tufted in white lines and a home plate. They are available in 6’ X 12’ and come in green or clay.
