LABOSPORT carries out all types of testing on horse race tracks on both natural and artificial surfacing. These are mainly performance tests designed to characterise parameters such as vertical modulus (stiffness/deformation), low and high shear strength. In addition, physical tests (particle size, organic content, moisture content …) and also undertaken. For tufted surfaces or oiled tufted surfaces, LABOSPORT has developed novel test methods which allow analysis of the composition of the mix and its effect on track performance.
