PORPLASTIC Retopping makes your running track NEW !!
The renovation of the stadium in Heddesheim startet as planned on June 9th, 2015 and took shortly 8 weeks until the beginning of August 2015. It was a summer break for the athletes but a high perfomance business for installers of athletic grounds. The available budget funds for the complete renovation were about 250 000 Euro. With this sum the coating of the inside track, the margin stripe of the outside track as well as damaged spots of a total of 6000 m² were restructured. Even the drain channel has been exchanged.
Working at the running track
The local (district) council authorised the local company Kohl Sport GmbH to renovate the stadium with the PORPLASTICSW retopping. „The workers in the Heddesheim stadium aren´t to be envied on hot summer days“, said Norman Kohl. „ Already in the morning temperatures can come up to 60 degree celsius in the zone above the synthtetic coating“. By order of the municipality the Heddesheim installer of athlecic groundsstartet with the renovation of the track. „My father had installed it more than 30 years ago – thus we knew in what we engaged“ , said Mr. Kohl smiling and completed: „The facility is all in all well preserved.“ This is due to the careful maintenance by the municipality but also to the good substance of the stadium.
The old synthetic resin of the track was eliminated carefully up to the asphalt underneath and in the following days the new coating was developped layer per layer. The fi rst layer was made of black SBR with a 1 component PU binder of the company PORPLASTIC. Beyond that the second layer: PORPLASTIC L370, a red polyurethane resin which closes the pores. In a fi nal step red EPDM rubber granules had been scattered into the liquid: PORPLASTIC C570 synthetic top layer. This coating forms the slip-proof and elastic track surface. „In the end you can´t see any differences between old and new“, promises Mr. Kohl. The job was fi nished by providing the new track with clean lines.

Not only Norman Kohl was satisfied with the final result – also the whole municipality stands behind this first-class job.
„At the end not only the track but the whole facility has been improved. See for example the repairs at the long-jump pit or at the water ditch“, refers mayor Kessler. Originally he would have liked to eliminate the latter, he said while laughing - „but you never know ...“
