Here is some much-needed information about artificial grass and where it comes from.
The quality of the raw materials is crucial to the way turf systems perform. Almost anything used as a carpet backing, has been used for the backing material. For example, jute to plastic to polyester. When it comes to quality artificial turf, polyester tire cord is the best for the backing. The fibres that create the blades of “grass” are made of nylon or polypropylene, and these 2 products can be manufactured in different ways. The nylon blades can be produced in thin sheets, then cut into strips or extruded through moulds to make fibres with a round or oval cross-section. This results in blades that feel and act more like natural grass.
The way the cushioning systems work is that it’s made up of rubber compounds or from polyester foam. Rubber tires are sometimes used in the composition of the rubber base, and some of the materials used in the backing can come from plastic or rubber recycling products. The thread used to sew the pads together must meet the same criteria of colour retention, strength, and durability as the rest of the system. Care and experience must also be applied to the selection of the adhesives used to bond all the components together, because you don’t want your grass falling apart! fibres that make up the blades of “grass” are made of nylon or polypropylene and can be manufactured in different ways.
Artificial grass will give you up to 20 years of a maintenance-free life, but of course this all depends on the volume of traffic in the area. Artificial grass won’t fade or flatten, and we also offer a 10-year warranty.
