DURACOURT Tennis Court Coating

DURACOURT tennis court coating is an easy to use, one coat tennis court paint for asphalt and concrete surfaces. This product exhibits outstanding durability and color retention. DURACOURT coatings may also be used to repaint previously painted surfaces with excellent results. The colors available are green, tile red, and white.

Surface Preparation

Any peeling or flaking paint on a previously painted surface must be removed before recoating. All cracks and pits in the surface must first be filled with any common crack filling material. Asphalt surfaces may be repaired with any good asphalt patching compound available at most hardware and building supply centers. Concrete surfaces may be repaired with our #960 Concrete Patch and other material of like quality.

Once the surface repairs have been made and the patching compound has set overnight, simply sweep the surface free of dirt and loose debris. No other surface preparation is necessary.

Application Procedure

The first step before applying tennis court coatings is to mask the boundary lines with 2" masking tape. This will speed the painting process, as brushes will not be necessary to trim large areas.

The next step is to paint the inbounds playing area. We recommend using an 18" roller cover with a 1/2" nap. The roller frame should be equipped with a 4" extension handle to speed the painting process.

For greater ease of application, you should thin DURACOURT coatings 10% with water. Stir thoroughly and pour out about 1/2 gallon on the surface. Spread the paint liberally on the surface with the roller making sure not to spread it out too thin.

You will need about 15 to 18 gallons to paint the inbounds areas and another 25 to 10 gallons for the out-of-bounds area of a tennis court.

After the inbounds and out-of-bounds areas have been painted, remove the masking tape and trim the lines with white.

Allow the courts to dry overnight and they will be ready for play the next morning.
