We asked paint suppliers and industry experts, “What are some new field painting technologies/practices now available t
sports field managers?”
Doug Schattinger, President/Pioneer Athletics
One issue Pioneer’s lab tackled this year is grass paint curing time – a difficult issue to battle because the plant itself is regularly releasing water. When you include cool weather, dew or normal sprinkling, the curing process can take days instead of hours. Pioneer developed a new formulation using cutting-edge resin technologies that allow paint to cure faster while not harming grass and maintaining the brilliance of our colors. The new formulation was sent to a variety of climates for independent evaluation. Each study confirmed faster curing, excellent product performance and sustained plant health.
