Capillary Material combines macropores with micropores to quickly move water down with the force of gravity for drainage, and up against the force of gravity with capillary force. The material’s polymers are what create microscopic connections in the actual binding agent of the Capillary Concrete. At the same time, it has the strength of concrete but with additional attributes that helps with drainage and sub-surface irrigation.
CC with GVY (zero suction)
Mainly adhesive hold water
Surfaces constructed with the Capillary Material withstands pressure of +1000 PSI or 6,800 pounds but still has sufficient G-MAX rating of 90-115 to be safe to use.
The durability of the Capillary Material ensures the groundwork of equestrian arenas doesn’t deteriorate over time. The porosity of the Capillary Material lets fluids sift through but particles won’t migrate into subsequent layers, or eventually into the drainage and irrigation systems at all.
Choose the size of the gravel for the Capillary Material to adjust the durability, drainage capacity and moisture holding characteristics to the intended characteristics of the ground
Using subsurface irrigation and moisture control, golf courses, horse arenas, cities and sport grounds can choose the durability and characteristics of the ground they install depending on the characteristics they want to offer to players, horses, riders and people.
Regardless of top layer, season and geography the surface will always have the moisture level of your choice through subsurface irrigation.
Capillary Material can withstand even the harshest climates with severe winter ground freezing conditions and large amounts of precipitation. With Capillary Hydroponics the grass will stay healthier for extended seasons - with the possibility to even heat the irrigated water.
No freeze-thaw damage
Ready for heavy precipitation
Installation can be done in-house or by a contractor in almost any weather condition, season or geography.
With over 1,000 worldwide installed venues, we know our way around. Additionally, we have an extensive Partner Network that can install our product when we can’t.
On top of giving you the opportunity to offer the best ground material possible, our Partner Program has additional benefits.
