We asked paint suppliers and industry experts, “What are some new field painting technologies/practices now available to sports field managers?”

Currently, the hot topic of discussion is temporary paints for synthetic turf surfaces. Removable paints are an excellent solution to increase field use for additional sports that were not originally inlayed into the turf. The result has been an increased demand for new synthetic turf paints that balance product longevity with easy removal, while coupling cleaning systems that are simple to use, yet are gentle enough not to destroy surface areas. Sports turf managers should work with field installers and paint suppliers to find the best-suited products that are compatible with their field and to ensure integrity of their turf.

Other industry representatives from Titan, Pioneer Athletics and more weighed in on the topic.
