Sportslite is a zeolitic amendment with very high CEC, drainage and aero-porosity rates, available in a range or grades to suit today's professional sports turf manager. Sportslite is a naturally occuring clinoptilolite zeolite which has been used in construction and maintenance practices in golf greens, football pitches, rugby pitches and many other playing surfaces.

It can be used as a top-dressing to improve nurient retention (CEC) in sand-based constructions or at the point of construction. Similarly, it can be used to eliminate the yellowing frequently seen above drain lines in pitches as it cuts down the leaching of applied fertilisers. Sportslite zeolite is also heavily used in current sand injection equipment such the Drill n Fill, GKB Sand Filler and Graden Countour Sand Injector, where it dries up putting surfaces with its high absorbency characteristic and creates a faster, firmer putting or bowling surface.

All our zeolites are tested with X-ray diffraction to check for impurities.

Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) levels range from 110meq/100gm up to 180meq/100gm.

Grades available include:

0.5 - 1.5mm (Greens grade), 

1.5 - 2.5mm (Blinding layer grade),

3 - 8mm (Drainage grit grade),

16 - 35mm (Drainage stone grade) and other on request.

We also stock zeolites for use in water purification, aquarium tanks and ammonia removal / suppression. Contact us for details.
