Can be tinted pastel colors if desired. Also available in black for swimming lane marking purposes. Surface preparation and application instructions must be followed conscientiously. Over 44% Vol. solids = 670 sq.ft./gal./mil DFT = only 4¢/sq.ft./mil DFT.

This premium quality, 100% acrylic latex Sports Court Coating has been formulated to help create a skid-resistant surface on tennis, paddle, hand ball, basketball and volleyball courts. Contains a coarse texture additive to give a skid-resistant surface also on walkways, steps, porches, breezeways, patios and around swimming pools. It dries quickly, providing a tough, durable, attractive finish. Available in White (for lines) and traditional Tennis Court Red and Green. Over 50% Vol. Solids = 804 sq.ft./gal./mil DFT = only 3¢/sq.ft/mil DFT.

An acrylic latex resin concentrate for marking athletic playing fields, such as football, soccer, baseball, lawn or clay tennis courts, track and field, etc. Dries in about 30 minutes, after which the lines are resistant to mild weather conditions. Much safer for players than old-fashioned powder, which will blow away with the wind or wash away with light rains. 29% Volume Solids = 458 sq.ft./ DFT = 2¢/sq.ft./mil DFT. Normally diluted 3:1 with water = $0.004/sq.ft./mil DFT.

A Premium Quality, 100% poly-acrylic, waterborne, universal, all-purpose, exterior and interior, clear, non-yellowing coating that can be used as a Primer, a Sealer, a Waterproofing Coating and a Topcoat or Finish Coating. It has excellent resistance to ultraviolet (sun) light degradation, excellent adhesion to practically every properly cleaned and prepared surface, and dries to a hard finish that has excellent resistance to wear due to normal pedestrian traffic. No solvents, no fumes … exceptionally user and environmentally friendly. "PST" will NOT "blush" or turn "white" if moisture develops under the coating, but will remain clear. Because SOMAY "PST" will always "breathe", it allows moisture vapor to escape through the cured coating film. "PST" can be applied to concrete, stucco, masonry, non-glazed porous brick, stone, concrete blocks, coral rocks and other porous decorative façade materials, wood shingles, wood siding, wood decks, docks or porch floor surfaces, wood paneling (interior and exterior), metal including aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, galvanized steel or primed tin or ferrous metal. "PST" can be used on practically any well-drained roof surface, including wood shingles, split cedar shakes, asphalt shingles, fiberglass shingles, concrete tiles, clay tiles, barrel tiles, 90-lb. slate, roll roofing, etc. Over 20% Vol. Solids = 200 sq.ft./gal./mil DFT = only 7¢/sq.ft/mil DFT.
