Polytan offers alternative to brick-red synthetic surface:

Until a few decades ago, synthetic surfaces in athletics stadiums and training facilities were only installed in the classic "running track red". This shade is more accurately described as "rust" and is also familiar to us from traditional tiled roofs. Its origins can be traced back to the popular cinder tracks of the past, whose compacted top layer consisted of red sandstone as well as cinder and sand.

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of synthetic sports surfaces for outdoor use, Polytan has noticed that new and, above all, more striking colours have been enjoying increasing popularity for running tracks, all-weather pitches and soft-impact surfaces for some years. And this goes for local authorities, stadium operators, clubs and schools in equal measure. In 2014, for example, Stockholm Olympic Stadium was the recipient of a Polytan PUR running track with areas of blue in selected sections, whilst a bright "pea green" track is one of the architectural highlights of an award-winning Munich primary school. Red is now celebrating its comeback as a trendy new colour alongside a wide variety of green and blue shades – and specifically the new Polytan Chili red.

Compared with the classic brick red, this bold and brilliant shade of red scores significantly more highly in terms of colour intensity. Polytan surfaces poured in-situ and those consisting of highly compressed granules are available in Polytan Chili red, so this brilliant colour can inject "vibrancy" into running tracks, schoolyards, playgrounds and multipurpose areas alike. Like all Polytan colours, this special new shade is colour-fast and UV-stable and stays bold and brilliant for decades.
