Impermeable Acrylic Tennis Surface
With an excellent appearance as good as any other in the range, the hardcourt acrylic system has no cushioning and comprises one resurfacer coat and three hardwearing colour coats. An economic court that's still a favourite with many players.
ITF Pace Classifications
Normally, Proflex is available in versions that have ITF Pace Classifications of 2, 3 and 4. But, by varying the formulation of the components used in Proflex it is possible to produce surfaces with ITF Pace Classifications of 1(Slow) and 5(Fast) in addition.
The materials used in these surfaces are environmentally friendly, using recycled rubber for the cushioning mat, together with solvent free adhesives and water based polymer coatings.
The standard range of colours comprises those shown here.
Please note that the colours are for illustration only and actual colours may differ considerably from those on the screen.
Any other choice of colour can be formulated on request.
Proflex in Action
