New Invisible Defense Protecting Virginia Tech Hokies
The synthetic turf fields, sports medicine training room, locker rooms, whirlpools and wrestling rooms of Virginia Tech Athletics are now protected by the most advanced antimicrobial on the market -- the colorless, odorless Sports Antimicrobial System (SAS) from SportCoatings.
Virginia Tech is setting new standards of proactive protection for universities nationwide by treating its facilities with SAS to provide the best possible environment for its student-athletes. The antimicrobial powering SAS creates a long-lasting antimicrobial layer effective against a very broad spectrum of all known bacteria, mold, fungi and algae.
