A BREAKTHROUGH IN SYNTHETIC TURF MARKING PAINTS

Who:  Seattle Seahawks.

What:  Needed a better solution to remove paint from synthetic fields.

How:  Eco Chemical™ worked closely with the Seattle Seahawks to address a growing problem with multi-use synthetic-turf athletic fields. Existing latex turf paints were easy to apply and produced great-looking lines, but were very difficult to remove. Million-dollar fields were being damaged as managers tried everything from scrubbers and harsh chemicals, and even steam cleaners, to remove lines so the fields could be restriped for another event.

Eco Chemical’s™ R&D team responded with Eco TempLine™, a coating that allowed synthetic turf fields to be marked, standing up to weather and severe play wear, yet easily and quickly erased. This allowed for quick, efficient field changes to accommodate different sports without doing costly damage to the turf. Eco TempLine has grown to become the preferred turf marking paint on synthetic NFL and college fields throughout the U.S. and Canada.
