When can the first repairs be expected?

Areas subject to intensive use, so called "high stress areas", e.g. the start and take-off-areas may need partial renewal/repairs after about 7 - 9 years, depending on the traffic. This cycle applies to all makes of synthetic tracks, even if some manufacturers may indicate longer periods. The coatings are applied in liquid form so that there will be no quality issues after the repairs have been carried out correctly.
