Color Coating

Neutral Concentrate is designed to be mixed with SportMaster ColorPlus pigment dispersion to achieve desired color.

Description

Neutral Concentrate is an unpigmented tennis court surface for new athletic court surfaces, and for existing tennis court resurfacing projects. Acrylic sports surfaces provide good aesthetics, spin responsive play, safe texture, and protection of the asphalt or concrete tennis court surfaces. When mixed with ColorPlus Pigment Dispersion, 16 different color coatings can be achieved with exceptional vibrance and hiding.

Uses

Tennis court surfaces, basketball court surfaces, and other multipurpose athletic and game court surfaces.

Surface Preparation

Pavement surface must be cleaned entirely of dust, dirt, and debris. Repair of tennis court surface defects, depressions and cracks must be completed prior to application. All repairs must be flush and smooth to adjoining surfaces.

New asphalt court surfaces must cure 14 to 30 days prior to application. It is recommended that any uncoated asphalt tennis court surface receive one or more coats of Acrylic Resurfacer (Technical Bulletin CMT – 3) as required by tennis court surface roughness and porosity to provide a smooth, dense underlayment for application of color coatings in the tennis court resurfacing process.

New concrete court surfaces must cure 28 days prior to application. Concrete sports surfaces should have a medium broom finish or similar roughened texture. Etch surface with muriatic or phosphoric acid and apply SportMaster Acrylic Adhesion Promoter, prior to tennis court resurfacing. (Technical Bulletin CMT – 21).

  • SportMaster Neutral Concentrate – 55 gallons
  • SportMaster ColorPlus – 4 gallons

  • SportMaster ColorPlus – 2 gallons
  • Water – 15-18 gallons
  • Silica Sand (80 to 100 mesh) – 200 lbs

Neutral Concentrate can also be used as a resurfacer by using the following mix design:

  • Water – 28-33 gallons
  • Silica Sand (50 to 60 mesh) – 600 lbs.
  • SportMaster Neutral Concentrate – 30 gallons

  • Silica Sand (50 to 60 mesh) – 300 lbs.

Note: Mix thoroughly to ensure complete dispersion of ColorPlus Pigment Dispersion, for consistent tennis court surface color.

Application

Apply mixed tennis court surface coating with a soft rubber squeegee. A minimum of two coats are recommended for consistent hiding during the tennis court resurfacing process.

Important

Stir material thoroughly before application of tennis court surface. Temperature must be a minimum of 50° F. and rising before application. Do not apply when rain is imminent or forecast. Keep from freezing. Close container when not in use .

Drying Time

Neutral Concentrate dries in 30 to 60 minutes under optimum drying conditions. Allow each coat of material to dry thoroughly before applying successive coats. Low ambient or low tennis court surface temperature and high humidity increase drying time. Allow tennis court surface coating to cure for 48 hours after resurfacing, before opening up for play.

Clean Up

Wash tools in water before tennis court surface material dries.
