Plexitrac Athletic Track Surfaces
Advanced running track surface systems
Plexitrac systems are advanced track surfacing systems designed to provide runners with the highest levels of surface performance for competition and cushioning for safe training.
Plexitrac high performance track surfacing systems made with proprietary Poly-Resin binders strike the perfect balance between dynamic response needed for running performance and cushioning appropriate for athlete safety.
Plexitrac maintains a long-time commitment to providing runners with technologically advanced track systems. All of our track systems have been developed to minimize musculoskeletal stress and fatigue, reducing the probability of injuries and accidents.
Plexitrac Systems deliver on that commitment while exceeding the demands of facility owners who, in addition to athlete safety, must consider a myriad of performance, environmental and budgetary factors when choosing a running track. Plexitrac Systems continue to surpass the competition in customer satisfaction over the life of the surface.
Plexitrac Systems embody today’s most innovative technological advances and are the preferred running tracks for thousands of new installations around the world. Plexitrac Systems are also the smart choice for retexturing, rejuvenating and enhancing existing asphalt, SBR latex, urethane and rubber – asphalt running tracks.
Plexitrac Systems are formulated to be the most durable, water-based, resilient track surfaces on the market today. Plexitrac Systems meet or exceed the IAAF requirements for spike resistance, force reduction, modified vertical deformation, and slip resistance.
A Running Track with All Weather Capacity
Plexitrac Systems are proven performers in all climatic conditions. Our proprietary coating system protects Plexitracs against fade and degradation from the heat and sun even in harsh UV environments like the South Pacific, Dubai and Australia. The granular EPDM rubber meets the IAAF requirements for slip resistance, a common challenge in rainy climates like the Northwest US and much of the Florida. Plexitrac Systems resist the snow and winter cold that degrade lesser running tracks.
Plexitrac Systems allow athletes to perform safely in a full range of temperatures. From 40º – 120ºF (4 – 49ºC), the performance properties of the track remain favorable for training and competing.
Temperature of Tracks
|Temperature change has minimal effect on performance
Calibration of Plexitrac’s safety performance has been achieved over the full range of climactic conditions a runner encounters from 40ºF to 120ºF (4ºC – 49ºC). This level of performance over such a broad temperature range is characteristic of Plexitrac’s superior PolyResin Technology. There is minimal thermoplastic change. This type of performance is unique, comparing favorably to more expensive urethane running track systems.
Plexitrac researchers in conjunction with leading scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found that installation of a full thickness, shock-absorbing surface is crucial in achieving proper safety for the athlete. Detailed track construction specifications developed for Plexitrac provide an accurate quality
Environmentally Preferable Running Tracks
Plexitrac’s unique structural mix of select water-based resins provide a durable, cohesive, non-toxic and environmentally friendly track surface which meet the rigorous athletic standards set by the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF).
Plexipave Sport Surfacing Systems use recycled and post-industrial components in each of the formulations. This manufacturing choice minimizes the exploitation of petroleum and wood resources.
All of the Plexitrac running track products can facilitate valuable credits under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED rating system
Heavy metals such as lead and mercury, have been a component of many track systems. Today, schools are making the switch to running tracks that are free of heavy metal hazards. The Poly-Resin technology employed by Plexitrac systems has no need for heavy metal components. Tests indicate the safety of Plexitrac products that they are free of any mercury or lead hazard.
Plexitrac offers four distinct, all-weather track systems to meet the demands of decision makers, athletes and budgets:
Each track system provides unique characteristics and attributes suited to the needs of our customers.
