Polybase GT

Polytan PolyBase GT, the next step for the perfect elastic layer: Polytan’s latest Green Technology development combines the well-known benefits of in-situ elastic layers with the environmental benefits of a recycled product and a revolutionary new technology for climate-friendly carbon dioxide utilisation. This will further improve the already excellent environmental performance of our elastic layers.

All the familiar benefits of our Polytan elastic layers remain fully intact and make the new PolyBase GT the ideal basis for synthetic turf systems, which should perform at their best in terms of both sporting performance and sustainability.

BINDER WITH REVOLUTIONARY CO2
MATERIAL

cardyon® is the name of the product from the German polymer manufacturer Covestro, which is the first company in the world to successfully use the greenhouse gas CO2 as a material for the manufacture of plastics and thus prevent it from entering the atmosphere. cardyon® is used in Polytan’s PolyBase GT to achieve permanently elastic binding of the rubber granulates.

RUBBER GRANULES MADE FROM 100 % RECYCLED MATERIAL

The rubber granules used to make the PolyBase GT are made from 100 % high quality SBR recycled material, which is available throughout Europe without long transport distances – a major contribution to the conservation of our resources and the environment. The rubber granules in the PolyBase GT elastic layer are made from 100% recycled styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), a synthetic rubber used in particular for the production of car tires. The PU binder for the permanently elastic compounding of the granules uses the revolutionary material cardyon®, which consists of 20 percent carbon dioxide. In doing so, the atmosphere is protected from not only the CO2 that goes directly into the product, but also from the emissions that would have resulted from the use of crude oil instead of CO2.

LONG-LASTING ELASTICITY

Sporting features of our elastic layers are in particular the elasticity values which permanently ensure the safety of the players: even with an extreme displacement of the infill materials or a completely worn grass surface, the shock absorption and deformation are optimally preserved.

OPTIMAL DRAINAGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROPERTIES

The elastic layer not only ensures sports functionality, but also has consistently reliable drainage properties. The water permeability of the system also contributes to the prevention of surface sealing. In addition, the environmental compatibility of the elastic layer is monitored by complete quality control according to the strict guidelines for soil and water.

PERFECTLY LEVEL AND SEAMLESS – THANKS TO IN-SITU CONSTRUCTION

The in-situ construction of the polytan elastic layers ensures that a perfectly flat surface with defined angles of inclination is created. This construction method is also the only way to create a seamless connection between the laid tracks that are always required for a sports field. This prevents unevenness and the formation of cracks, while also ensuring that the turf surface laid on top does not develop ripples and gaps.

POLYTAN GREEN TECHNOLOGY

Polytan’s “Green Technology” marks out a new generation of highly developed products that combine cutting-edge technological expertise from the plastics industry with the functional and ecological benefits of renewable raw materials or alternative technologies that protect the climate. In this way, Polytan consistently meets its own development demands for products that combine climate protection and resource conservation with excellent functional features for sports.
