Action-Track 300 (Beynon BSS 200)

Overview

A spray-applied top layer of EPDM granules and single component Polyurethane creates an all-weather surface, free of granule migration.
A two-component Polyurethane seal coat is applied for an impermeable surface.

The bottom layer combines Polyurethane binder and SBR granules to achieve optimal comfort and shock absorption.

 

Copeland Coating Company Inc. is a licensed installer of the Beynon BSS 200 (An equal to the Action-Track 300)

Our ACTION-TRACK 300 system is installed in three (3) phases starting with a mechanically paved base mat consisting of a unique blend of single component polyurethane binder and black SBR rubber granules. The porous base mat is then rendered non-porous with a squeegee applied two component, pigmented polyurethane sealer. In the final phase color, texture and additional protection are added by introducing a combination of pigmented polyurethane binder and colored EPDM rubber granules which are “structurally sprayed” onto the surface of the sealed base mat to create the finished surface.

Increased longevity and enhanced performance are characteristic of our ACTION-TRACK 300 system making it popular at University, High School and Municipal levels.

System Characteristics:

Resilient: Retains resiliency over wide range of temperatures

Fast and Safe: Greater energy return for speed – consistent shock absorption qualities for safe, injury free training. Tailored and textured to provide friction in all conditions. Added protection against harmful effects of ultra violet light

Durable: Water drains off surface eliminating slick spots. Additional polyurethane content adds strength and increases longevity. Impervious design prevents water from penetrating surface.

Colored: Black, Red and Green are standard – Blue and other special colors upcharge

Renewable: Can be repaired and/or resurfaced utilizing our TRACTION TOP surfacing system. Site assessments, budget quotes and resurfacing specifications available upon request.

Technical Specifications

ACTION-TRACK® 300 Resilient Urethane Track Surface

1. Purpose:
The intent of this specification is to provide a guideline for the improvement of a previously sound bituminous concrete sub-base. Action-Track 300 is a university grade running track surface consisting of a urethane bound black SBR base mat, which is rendered non-porous by the application of a pigmented polyurethane seal coat. A structurally sprayed surface course is then applied consisting of two pigmented, polyurethane layers, encapsulating EPDM ultraviolet resistant rubber granules. This system is a non-porous all weather surface. It is textured, extremely durable, resilient and self-healing.

2. Scope:
The work covered by this specification consists of furnishing all labor, equipment materials, and performance of all operations in connection with the installation of the surface on track and field events.

3. Materials:

  • Polyurethane Primer
  • SBR Rubber Base Mat Granulate, 1mm to 3mm or 1mm to 4mm rubber containing no dust.
  • Clear, 100% polyurethane base mat binding agent
  • EPDM pigmented spray layer rubber granulate, .5-1.5mm.
  • Pigmented Polyurethane Structural Spray binder.
  • Note: BLUE and other special colors requires the use of an “ALIPHATIC” polyurethane binder must be used to prevent discoloring due to ultra violet exposure.
  • Polyurethane line marking paint.

4. Surface Preparation:

  • After a suitable soil sterilant, a recommended bottom course shall consist of 4″ to 8″ of compacted crushed stone, gravel, or suitable aggregate over a firm, stable frost free sub-grade which has been brought to proper contour and elevation in strict accordance with drawings and/or specifications, and compacted to 95% density.
  • A binder leveling course of an open-textured bituminous concrete (maximum stone size of 3/4″) is laid upon the prepared bottom course to a compacted thickness of 2.5″.
  • The wearing (top) bituminous concrete course consists of 3/8″ maximum aggregate to a thickness of 1.5″ compacted.

5. Planarity and Slope:
Before application of the surface course the receiving surface should be checked for proper planarity and slope. All corrective work shall be performed to provide a safe, functional and well draining surface. For cross slope and inclination tolerances please refer to the appropriate governing body (NFSHA, NCAA, IAAF)

6. Procedure:

BASE MAT – SEAL COAT – STRUCTURAL SPRAY

  • Following inspection of asphalt base and required curing time, the entire area to be surfaced shall be thoroughly cleaned, removing any foreign and loose material.
  • Polyurethane Primer will then be applied to the entire surface uniformly at a rate of not less than 3 lbs. per square yard. Allowing a minimum of 30 minutes curing time before the application of the base mat material.
  • The base mat will consist of an 18 to 23% range Polyurethane Base Mat Binding Agent and 77 to 82% range SBR Rubber Base Mat Granulate as described above. This mixture is prepared in a mechanical mixer which is clean and dry. The base mat is applied with a mechanically operated screed machine which has an electrically heated screed. All joint work shall be flush with the adjacent mat. Joints which have cured will have their edges primed with Polyurethane Primer.
  • A squeegee applied layer of 2-component, pigmented, polyurethane seal coat shall be applied at a rate of no less than 2.75 lbs. per square yard. This coating shall completely seal the base mat and render it non-porous.
  • After proper curing the entire surface will receive two structural spray layers consisting of 60% Pigmented Polyurethane Structural Spray Binder and 40% EPDM Pigmented Rubber Spray Layer Granulate. Each spray layer will be applied uniformly at a rate of not less than 1.5 lbs. per square yard, for a total spray layer coverage of not less than 3.0 lbs. per square yard for the two spray layers.

7. Minimum Physical Properties of the Surface:

  • Thickness: 13mm or as specified by architect or engineer
  • Hardness: (ASTM D42240): Shore A @ 50
  • Elongation: (ASTM D412): 110%
  • Tensile Strength: (ASTM D412): 95 PSI
  • Abrasion Resistance: (ASTM D501): 0.25 to 0.425 grams loss after 1000 cycles
  • Chalking: (ASTM D822): No charge after 1000 hours in weatherometer
  • Coeffient of Friction: (ASTM D1894): Dry-0.70 to 0.75 Wet-0.60 to 0.65
  • Resilience: (ASTM D2632): 37 to 44%
  • Tear Resistance: (ASTM D624): 50 to 75 PSI

In this installment, Copeland provided USTA Eastern a step-by-step view of a recent court repair and resurfacing project at Katonah Memorial Park in Katonah, NY. Please check out the PDF of the full article!

Vassar College has experienced a very good working relationship with Copeland Coating during the past 8 years. We currently have 3 separate tiers of courts consisting of; 6 varsity courts in the north tier, 3 campus use courts in the center tier and 4 campus/local community use courts in the south tier.

Copeland management and their front line crew have always responded in a timely manner and have worked under very tight schedules to prepare our courts for the fall tennis season. They reconfigured our center tier from 4 to 3 doubles courts per a request from the tennis coaching staff with excellent results and have coated our south tier courts in a manner that will lengthen the useful life even though major renovation work is clearly needed.
I can confidently recommend Copeland Coating for tennis court re-coating and overall renovation work and should add that they are very competitive in their pricing.

We’ve been working with Copeland Coating for the past 20 years and never once have they disappointed us. The window of time with which they have to work with seems to shrink each year based on colder and wetter winters, yet each year they somehow figure out how to complete their work on time, and to perfection. The staff at Copeland are great to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for top quality workmanship.

The Copeland Coating Company has been successfully maintaining all of the sport surfaces at the Rocking Horse Ranch Resort for over 20 years (which is a testimony unto itself).

At each winter’s end, we contemplate the complete overhaul of our 40 year old exterior tennis courts , the crew at Copeland manages the near impossible in extending the life of these courts for yet another full season with their time tested re-coating process.

We maintain a high profile family resort that earns the prestigious 3 Diamond Travel Award every year. It is critical that wherever our guests are on our 500 acre facility, they experience an extremely well maintained, family friendly resort property.

Thank you Copeland Coating for being part of our facility management team.

Track & Field has always been a major part of my life.  I was an athlete from a young age growing up in New York and now a Master official and high school track & field coach.  Never did I imagine that I would have the ability and opportunity to build a track & field facility.

Every detail was planned carefully.  It was very important to me to choose the correct workers and companies that would make my dream a reality.  Most of the workers were local with many being Bethel track & field alumni and families.  When it came to choosing a track surfacing company, the choices were many, but one significantly stood out from the rest….Action Track Surfacing.

My first meeting with Steve Hinding & Doug Stone left me with an impression of honesty and commitment, as well as superior knowledge and expertise.   They listened carefully to my desires and needs. They offered suggestions and a well organized plan to accomplish my goal.  They were as concerned with completing a high quality track facility as I was.  Every question was met with a timely answer.  There were no hidden costs.  The project was completed in the contracted budget with no surprises.  Their crews worked perfectly with in the time table.  They were clean, hard working and professional…even to the point of cutting a slot drain on their hands and knees to meet the desired design!  Steve has been back several times to check the quality of his work.  Action Track has made sure that I am completely satisfied with the project.  

 Each day I arrive at the facility it takes my breath away.  The beautiful 8 lane track, javelin runway, and sealed walkways, all completed by Action Track Surfacing, have given my team and the town of Bethel a first class track & field facility!  I would highly recommend their services for all track & field surfacing needs.
