    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.
