Preparation & Application

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 com-pound available at most hardware and building supply centers. Concrete surfaces may be repaired with our #960 Concrete Patch or 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 Procedures

Step 1

Before applying tennis court coatings, mask the boundary lines with 2" masking tape. This will speed the coating process, as brushes will not be necessary to trim large areas.

Step 2

Coat 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 coating 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 coating liberally on the surface with the roller making sure not to spread it out too thin.

You will need about 15-18 gallons to coat the inbounds area and another 25-30 gallons for the out-of-bounds area of a tennis court.

After the inbounds and out-of-bounds areas have been coated, 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.
