ALIPHATIC BINDER

ALIPHATIC BINDER
Aliphatic binders are clear in color, UV resistant and truly light stable, meaning that the color you have installed is the color the surface will remain. Aliphatic binders are more expensive than aromatic binders.

ALL WEATHER SURFACE

ALL WEATHER SURFACE
A playing surface unaffected by rain but affected by frost and snow.

AROMATIC BINDER

AROMATIC BINDER
Aromatic binders bond well to particles but tend to “yellow” the material. After a few months this “yellowing” will fade. Aromatic is honey colored to begin with and will darken most colors considerably as it is not truly UV resistant and light stable.

ARTIFICIAL GRASS

ARTIFICIAL GRASS
‘3G’ artificial grass with long pile and rubber particulate pile filling is less suitable for hockey. Competitive (i.e. full contact) rugby union and rugby league must be played on pitches which have a high degree of shock absorbency as specified by the NGBs of those sports.
