This specification establishes the minimum performance requirements, classification, and test methods for synthetic surfaced running tracks. Even so, this specification does not imply that an injury cannot be incurred if the surface is found to be in compliance with this specification. The requirements for which newly installed synthetic surfaces shall be tested on and consequently comply to are imperfections, evenness, thickness, drainage, force reduction, modified vertical deformation, texture influence when wet, tensile properties, color in grey scale, weathering, spike resistance, and flammability.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification establishes the minimum performance requirements and classification when tested in accordance with the procedures outlined within this specification. All documents referencing this specification must include classification required.
1.2 This specification does not imply that an injury cannot be incurred if the surface is found to be in compliance with this specification.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
