Launched at FSB Cologne under the title “Made for Sports”, a new range of adhesives from Stauf is the end result of a comprehensive research programme on technology for sports flooring.
Stauf researched suitable bonding technologies for various sports flooring, for indoor and outdoor use. The focus was on the durability, safety and resilience of composite systems, combining special adhesives and sports flooring.
In a number of different tests, Stauf’s sports flooring adhesives were subjected to varying thermal and climatic conditions and extreme mechanical stress in order to be optimised accordingly.
The end result is not a “one-size-fits-all” recipe for sports flooring, but a line of products adapted to suit the specific characteristics and demands of differing indoor and outdoor sports flooring systems. In conjunction with professional technical consulting, Stauf can also match and modify adhesive systems for specific on-site conditions.
“Made for Sports” is not without precedent: STAUF synthetic turf bonding has already proven its safety and reliability credentials in leading global stadiums. The company has simply developed a complete range of products based on this successful predecessor.
The new range comprises adhesive systems and accessories for installing various types of flooring for indoor and outdoor sports facilities and for synthetic turf. Stauf is also extending its product range in the indoor sports sector with special adhesives for impact protection walls and ceiling liners.
“Very low emission”
The Siegerland family-owned company sets high standards for all its product developments. As well as quality and lasting reliability, a primary concern for Stauf is protecting health and environment.
For this reason, most of Stauf’s products are classified as “very low emission” under Emicode (EC I or EC I PLUS) – the trademarkprotected mark for the classification of low emission flooring installation products. The mark is awarded by the Association for the Control of Emissions in Products for Flooring Installation, Adhesives and Building Materials (GEV) for solvent-free, low emission products.
