Beynon Sports Surfaces Launched Industry's First Eco-Friendly Structural Spray Running Track System

Published on 2009-05-18. Author : SpecialChem

Hunt Valley, MD (Vocus) -- Adhering to a guiding principle of corporate environmental responsibility, Beynon Sports Surfaces has introduced Beypur 160, the athletic track industry's first water-based structural spray coating, an achievement which marks Beynon Sports Surfaces as a clear leader in green product development.

The Beypur 160 system is a water-based structural spray containing minimal VOCs, the lowest levels of any track surface available on the market today. The system is also absent of free isocyanates, translating into vastly reduced chemical exposure to installers, citizens, and athletes. The environmentally friendly nature of the product translates into numerous benefits throughout the life of the track.

Installation benefits include a faster drying time allowing for more efficient applications, in most cases translating into multiple spray applications in a single day. A low overspray also means that less site preparation work is involved and complicated clean up work is avoided. The Beypur 160 system allows for a water wash up of installation equipment in place of powerful chemical solvents as well as reducing odors due to the absence of solvents and isocyanates.

Upon replacement of the track surface, the reduction of harmful chemicals allows for simpler disposal due to reducing hazardous waste and environmental liabilities.

"Our mission is to provide the highest quality tracks in the industry at minimal negative impact to the environment. The development of the Beypur 160 system is yet another milestone towards that ultimate goal," said Drew Beynon, Vice President of Beynon Sports Surfaces.

The Beypur 160 surface maintains all of the benefits customers are used to expecting from a Beynon track, delivering consistent energy return throughout its life cycle, permitting safer, long-term training, optimizing performance in competition, and is supported by a comprehensive manufacturer's warranty.
