New running track in Colombia

Advert by IAKS member KDF - Kataskeves Dapedon Ltd.

KDF has established itself in recent years in Latin ­America through partners in Colombia, Chile, Peru, expanding its reach and becoming one of the important players in the sports flooring markets in the continent.

Our partner in Colombia recently applied our WORLD ­ATHLETICS-certified running track system POLTRACK SPRAYCOAT in an area of 6,800 m2 in Popayan region. Popayan is the capital of the Colombian Department of Cauca and the cultural centre of the region, and the public authorities there chose and trusted our certified running track system for this project.

The relevant stadium needed a new up-to-date track ­surface to serve the needs of the athletes, so the existing running track was removed and replaced by our certified running track system.

The base layer is constructed at site comprising PU binder and SBR granules. After the curing of the mixture the spraycoat layers are applied - a mixture of a special, modified PU spraycoating with EPDM granules applied by a purpose-built spraying machine.

The composition of the top surface has been consistently upgraded to provide the soft surface the athletes need to protect their body and perform at the highest level at the same time.

Our R & D department continuously checks and tests our ­systems in different climates/conditions to improve their performance for the specific demands of each region, from Middle East to North Europe, to Latin America and beyond.
