Novacushion® is a 100% elastomeric (soft and flexible) acrylic binder blended with fine EPDM rubber granules.
Novacushion is applied in multiple layers (the more layers, the greater shock absorbing quality). Two to three coats of COMBINATION SURFACE®are applied over the cushion surface providing a uniform texture and attractive color finish without decreasing the comfort of the cushion system. NOVACUSHION courts are not “soft”, but do absorb some of the impact between the tennis shoe and the court surface reducing player fatigue. A soft surface would create a court that is very difficult to run on – similar to the extra energy required when running on a soft sandy beach. The system’s cushioning combined with the Combination Surface® top coat provide players a unique low abrasive texture reducing wear on shoes, balls and more importantly your body. This all-weather system retains the low maintenance, durable features found with all Novacrylic surfaces and is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.
- Minimum Application Temperature is 50°F and rising.
- Application is with a neoprene rubber squeegee.
- Novacushion is not hazardous* and is free of lead, mercury, asbestos and formaldehyde.
