Indoor Soccer Turf Field with Rubber In-fill

Posted by TruMark / Monday, October 17, 2011 / Posted Under: Product_Review, Sports, Turf _Tips
Painting solutions can vary depending on the type of turf facility and your requirements. Here's a question from a indoor soccer facility manager.

"I work for a brand new indoor soccer facility in Kansas City and we have a turf field with in-fill that we needs to get painted for use. What solutions do you offer for synthetic turf with rubber in-fill that we can get down in the next couple of days? Your assistance is most appreciated."

There are a couple indoor soccer field painting options you can consider.

If you are looking for a temporary marking solutions we have:
1) Aerosol Chalk (Durastripe Aerosol Chalk) – same line striper as an aerosol painter ($10/case more for color)

2) Bulk Liquid Chalk (SwitchBack Double Play Liquid Chalk) – need an airless paint striper (currently on in white)

3) Removable Field Marking Paint (TrailBlazer Rally Day or Season Ticket) – needs an airless striper that can produce 900 psi at the pump head (can be removed with a turf paint cleaning agent and bristle brush)


If you are looking for a more permanent field marking solution we have:
1) Aerosol Paint with an Aerosol Paint Clear Coat primer (DuraStriper Paint)


2) Permanent Bulk Latex Paint (TrailBlazer Solar Trail) -- needs an airless striper that can produce 900 psi at the pump head


There are several website links the may help better expand some of the differences.

With application on synthetic turf you should try and achieve at least a one hour dry time for the chalk products and a couple hours (for outside application and 12 to 24 hours on an inside application).
