Artificial Turf Classification
- May 15, 2018 -

Not sand filled


In the United States, artificial turf fiber materials used in most artificial turfs are high-grade nylon materials, and they also use multiple fibers. The non-sand-filled artificial turf can also be classified into two types: seepage and impervious. This lawn resembles a natural lawn in appearance, with a layer of shock-absorbing foam cushion, and the shock-absorbing layer has a variety of different densities and thicknesses. Since there are not many manufacturers that have mastered the laying technology of artificial turf in China, and most of them are foreign technologies, the laying of shock-absorbing foam cushions must be completed by foreign experts when laying unsanded artificial turf. Under the shock-absorbing foam, a layer of smooth asphalt is laid as the foundation. The gravel, sand, and pebbles are also laid as the basis for the asphalt. The construction of the drainage system is the most critical link. In addition, this type of artificial turf must use artificial grass special machinery in the installation process, especially in the laying and installation of some professional or expensive sports venues, otherwise it will not be able to meet the requirements of site leveling and uniformity. For example, the hockey stadium of the Beijing Lucheng Institute of Sport and Technology, which is the hockey training venue for the 2008 Olympics, and some movable artificial grass and artificial artificial grass, etc., to meet special needs must be strictly constructed according to the above requirements.


Filling particles


Filled turfgrass has been accepted by many users in China because of its excellent sports performance and good practicality. Most of its materials use polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) or more than two kinds of polymer, this turf fiber is longer than the non-sand turf, surface backfill 2-3 mm of quartz sand and rubber particles. Its sporting characteristics are very close to the natural lawn and can be used throughout the year and all seasons. Usually the lawn needs to be maintained for 6-8 months to reach its optimum condition after laying. This type of lawn is particularly suitable for laying outdoors, and its warranty period is usually 5-8 years, but its actual life can be more than 5 years. In long-term dry weather, if you sprinkle a little water on the lawn, you can reduce the risk of athletes being bruised.


Mixed lawn


It is no longer a dream to blend natural and artificial turf. The turfgrass is natural, and the root structure of the grass is reinforced with plastic, for example, to allow the grass to grow on a plastic netted bottom. In this way, the user-friendly nature of natural turf is well combined with the superior durability of artificial turf.


In China, 95% of particles are filled with artificial turf. However, many schools often overlook the most important construction steps when selecting products. The construction technology of artificial grass is very important for the maintenance of artificial grass and its longevity.
