TRACKS & RACES
The ideal material for farm races and tracks – INPRO race pumice, mined at Atiamuri is an amorphous blend of mainly silicon and aluminium oxide and low levels of other metal oxides.
Pumice is a light siliceous vesicular volcanic rock that is suitable for use in construction, industrial applications, agriculture and also horticulture and hydroponics. The primary attraction of INPRO pumice is that whilst it is extremely porous ensuring free drainage of water it is strong enough that, when compacted, it still retains all its properties and provides the perfect surface.
Proven to be popular with professionals in the horse racing industry for use in stables and on paths and with the dairy industry for calf pens and races, our race pumice is the ideal aggregate for all stock.
For cattle it has been proven to reduce injuries on milking routes and therefore cut back on unwanted hoof injury and veterinary expenses as well as minimizing milking losses.
For horses it is a firm aggregate to exercise on because it will not compact down to a hard surface, and equally will contain excess water during heavy rainfall and still provide grip on uneven surfaces.
INPRO Race Pumice can be sourced in a number of grades specific to creating the ideal race, path or pen surface.
