Britannia Decatone Macadam Binder is a safe, eco-friendly binding aid for old/new macadam tennis courts, and multi-play areas. Strong and flexible, it binds the court’s top surface to help it last longer. Water based and suitable for both internal and external use.

Because this binder does NOT have a nonslip finish, it must be over-coated with Britannia Decatone SR60 Tennis Court Coating.

For airless spray application.

Can be brush or roller applied for playgrounds.

Drying Time

  • Under ambient conditions between 1-2 hours at the recommended spreading rate
  • For badly fretting surfaces where a thicker film is applied the drying could be 2-3 hours, depending on temperature and humidity and time of year (recommended use March to September only)

  • Vacuum or pressure blasting with water may remove any debris
  • Brushing (manual or machine) may be suitable

New surfaces should be left to oxidise for at least three weeks in summer and up to 3 months during winter before applying the Decatone Macadam Binder.
