Capillary Concrete™ is a patented pending Sports-base drainage and hydrating material. It is strong, environmentally sound and easy to mix and install. It has the ability to drain enormous amounts of water and still keep a minimum level of moisture by capillary action.
Capillary Concrete™ is the only sports base material that can remove water and replenish moisture at the same time, essential in presenting the best sports surfaces.
Capillary Concrete™ is a cement-based polymer material that can solve all drainage and moisture problems in many different sports, such as golf, equestrian sports, sports fields etc. It has a superior life-time and strength value, and it is the most sustainable construction material for sports drainage and moisture control available.
Through the unique characteristics of Capillary Concrete™, various grass surfaces can be constructed with a built-in water storage and distribution system. On golf tees for instance, initial testing suggests a 90% water reduction rate in irrigation compared to traditionally constructed areas. The possibilities are many with the major financial and environmental advantages of this product.
Capillary Concrete™ is very durable, environmentally safe and easy to install.
It has been installed at many different courses on five different continents with excellent results in all climates.
It drains perfectly and maintains the bunker sand at an ideal moisture level. And all this at a very reasonable price. This simply solves all bunker problems!
Capillary Concrete™ is the only sports base that moves water in two directions and is strong enough to form an edge.
This is the secret behind Capillary Concrete’s unique ability to keep bunkers in great shape regardless of weather conditions. Capillary Concrete™ will virtually eliminate wash-outs, soil contamination, plugged ball lies and other bunker maintenance problems.
Capillary Concrete bunkers were first installed in 2010 in Scandinavia in a very tough climate with severe winter ground freezing conditions. The product was invented and developed by Martin Sternberg, CGCS, as a means of finally resolving all bunker problems in even the most severe golf course locations. Today, thousands of bunkers have been built or renovated with Capillary Concrete all across the world, from Australia, Japan, Africa to the USA and Europe. Capillary Concrete™ is available throughout the world, in every major golf market through local Distributors. .
Capillary Concrete is an international company and is part-owned by Annika Sörenstam, Martin Sternberg and a group of other investors.
The Board of Directors of Capillary Concrete consists of some very experienced turf professionals such as Stig Persson, former Chairman of the Swedish Greenkeepers Association, FEGGA (European Greenkeepers Assoc.), Ted Fist, former Head Course Manager from Chicago, Illinois, Martin Sternberg, CGCS, and a very competent administrative team in offices in Celebration, Florida and Gothenburg, Sweden.
