Announcing Our New Line of Calcined Clay Conditioners

Continuing to expand our product offering by adding 4 new powerful players to our lineup.


 

After months of designing, producing, and testing, we can finally announce our brand new calcined clay line, complete with four unique infield conditioners.

In an effort to provide the best solution to the end-user in conjunction with recommending best practices, we sought to provide a line of conditioners that were unique to the industry. To create a standout line in both uniqueness and usability, we focused the design and development around four key goals.

  1. Increased Durability – One of the most important factors to us is durability. Durability reduces contamination, cuts down the amount of calcined clay that’s needed over time, and allows for the product to go further–spreading product out longer. Our team was able to create the most durable calcined clay on the market.
  2. Less Migration – Walking in the footsteps of our expanded shale line, we were able to create a denser calcined particle that reduces migration from wind and rain meaning less product in your lips and edges, as well as a longer lasting product.
  3. Reduction in Fines & Dust – When emptying your typical bag of calcined clay, it’s very likely you will see some dust. Dust and fine particles can compromise the integrity of your infield. We worked hard to reduce the fines and very fines, creating a cleaner product with less dust.
  4. Adequate Absorption – With the first three goals being top priority, we certainly didn’t want to undermine the importance of absorption. That being said, we were able to craft the line to still have plenty of absorption capability. In addition, our team will also be able to predict absorption rate based on weather, time of year, and number of fields creating custom recommendations for you in terms of mixing calcined clay with expanded shale.

 

“This is the last missing piece to the puzzle which is going to complement our DuraEdge profile. We can now provide anything you can possibly think of for your baseball and softball infield skin surface needs, making us a one-stop-shop.”

 –Luke Yoder, Senior VP of Business Development

 

Our new line includes four different calcined clay products:

 

Fair Ball Logo.pngFair Ball High Density Infield Conditioner is engineered to stay in place, provide more coverage, and provide less particle breakdown, equating to less applications than any other calcined on the market. Fair Ball is designed to last longer and go further, making it extremely economical. The volume of recommended product per infield is also greatly reduced from industry standards, providing the end-user opportunities to apply Fair Ball on more fields.

 

ProSlide Professional LogoProSlide Professional Infield Conditioner is engineered to present a professional appearance and provide less migration due to a higher density particle. The reduction of fines in the screening process provides a more even coverage and less contamination. Greater hardness also reduces breakdown which results in a longer lasting particle that stays on top.

 

ProSlide Platinum LogoProSlide Platinum Infield Conditioner is engineered to be the most consistent medium gradation particle size conditioner. Like ProSlide Professional, Platinum provides a more even coverage and less contamination due to the reduced amount of fines and smaller particles.

 

ProDry Logo2ProDry Infield Conditioner is engineered to quickly remove standing water. As a result of the screening process, which removes very fine particles and dust, this product can be dragged in the following day without compromising the integrity of your infield skin. ProDry is not simply the gathered spoils of other materials. In addition to water removal, the gradation also provides opportunity for applications to highly visible skinned areas to display a very clean, finely manicured appearance without creating a layering effect.

 

We have designed these products to sit specifically on the surface to compliment DuraEdge infields, tilling into the profile is not recommended.

 

This new line of DuraEdge calcined clay conditioners will be available coming 2019. For more information visit www.duraedge.com or call (866) 867-0052.
