PRIMO MAXX proves a clear winner for line marking
Sports turf managers could halve the time and cost of line marking this season by mixing PRIMO MAXX with line marking paints. Independent trials have shown this can retain line visibility for up to 50% longer, compared to line marking alone.
Mixing the turf growth regulator with line marking paint can suppress grass growth for up to six weeks and has been shown to give significantly better retention of line colour and visibility for longer. Furthermore, there is no damage to the playing surface associated with total herbicide applications, which can allow weeds to ingress and create the need for re-sowing at the season's end.
PRIMO MAXX is approved for use as a pre-mix with paints for wheel-to-wheel application or with spray line marking applicators. The combination has been extensively tested with a full range of commercial paints and line marking equipment.
At the end of the season, the turf simply reverts out of regulation with no damage or lasting effects. There is no cost or effort of re-seeding, no bare soil for weeds to establish and, if sports turf is being used for another event over the summer, new lines can be quickly and easily put in place.
Trials have shown the lines marked with paint mixed with PRIMO MAXX (foreground) remain clear and visible up to 50% longer than line marking paint alone.
PRIMO MAXX should be used at a rate of 2 mL per L of line marking paint applied, or 40 mL in a 20 L tank, for example.
Turf managers who use PRIMO MAXX on sports playing surfaces have already recognised the improvements in turf density, rooting depth and the added strength to resist the wear and tear of heavy play, along with up to 50% reduction in mowing requirement and clipping yield. Now, PRIMO MAXX can make a further contribution to cutting costs and simplifying management, by reducing line marking requirement by up to a half.
