What Is the Best Paint to Use for an Outdoor Basketball Court?

Sports Court lines painted by EverLine Coatings

An outdoor basketball court must be appropriately lined to play the game properly. An issue with the lines causes problems during play, so accuracy in markings is essential. Mediocre lines that haven’t been measured correctly or that are dim in their appearance can throw off your game. 

Read on to discover the best paint choice for outdoor basketball courts. 

Clear, Simple-to-See Outdoor Basketball Court Markings

While fresh new lines painted on your outdoor court may look fabulous right after it is applied, not all outdoor paint options are created equally. They may fade, crack, chip, or quickly disappear, depending on what they are painted with. You’ll be pleased to learn about a highly favored solution: TBL Durables. How does it stand up to other outdoor sports line painting options? Let’s take a look: 

The problem with acrylic paint

Acrylic paint dries fast, stands up well to UV rays, and delivers a smooth appearance that adheres to concrete well. The problem is that it lacks longevity, especially when compared to TBL Durables—our top choice in outdoor sports line paint. 

Why water-based polyurethane isn’t the best option

Water-based polyurethane is used a lot on commercial properties since it locks in color well, doesn’t fade easily, and is long. The problem with it is that it doesn’t adhere to concrete surfaces, particularly if it gets wet. 

Why epoxy isn’t the best solution

This paint type peels off easily because it doesn’t adjust well to extreme temperature shifts outdoors. When epoxy wears away, it’s challenging to see sports court markings, making it tough to play basketball on. 

What makes TBL Durables the best choice for outdoor basketball court markings?
