Calibration of Plexitrac's safety performance has been achieved over the full range of climactic conditions a runner encounters from 40ºF to 120ºF (4ºC - 49ºC). This level of performance over such a broad temperature range is characteristic of Plexitrac's superior PolyResin Technology. There is minimal thermoplastic change. This type of performance is unique, comparing favorably to more expensive urethane running track systems. Temperature change has a minimal effect on performance.
Plexitrac researchers in conjunction with leading scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found that installation of a full thickness, shock-absorbing surface is crucial in achieving proper safety for the athlete. Detailed track construction specifications developed for Plexitrac provide an accurate quality.
ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERABLE RUNNING TRACKS
Plexitrac's unique structural mix of select water-based resins provide a durable, cohesive, non-toxic and environmentally friendly track surface which meets the rigorous athletic standards set by the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF).
Plexipave Sport Surfacing Systems use recycled and post-industrial components in each of the formulations. This manufacturing choice minimizes the exploitation of petroleum and wood resources.
All of the Plexitrac running track products can facilitate valuable credits under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED rating system.
Heavy metals such as lead and mercury, have been a component of many track systems. Today, schools are making the switch to running tracks that are free of heavy metal hazards. The Poly-Resin technology employed by Plexitrac systems has no need for heavy metal components. Tests indicate the safety of Plexitrac products that they are free of any mercury or lead hazard.
