PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY IN SAN ANTONIO TempLine removable synthetic turf paint TempLine water based paints are easy to apply and remove, with outstanding brightness, opacity, play durability and weather resistance in between. TempLine paint is available in three grades, depending on your need for extended durability versus short term utility and ease of removal. All three grades come ready to use in a broad range of colors formulated to dry fast and stay flexible without binding together turf fibers or infill granules. TempLine paints are valued for the brightness and durability they provide without creating heavy build-up. Eco Chemical, Inc.

Beacon Athletics App measures relative greenness The FieldScout GreenIndex+ Turf app allows users to measure turf health via relative greenness using a smartphone camera. The app quickly and conveniently captures images from a smartphone, calculates the DGCI (Dark Green Color Index), and correlates to visual ratings. Users can customize the visual rating calculation for different species of grass and specific plots of land. Measurements can be compared to identify variability or trends in turf health across sports fields and golf courses, providing valuable data for decisions regarding fertilization and irrigation. All data is logged and geo-referenced, and can be emailed to a personal computer for further analysis.
