Main Goal

With high temperatures and humidity ratios, the main challenges of a synthetic turf in Latin America and, in this case, in Peru (Lima), are related to the athletes comfort: technical shock absorption, lower energy restitution, but above all, lower surface temperature in order to avoid health issues. On the other hand, …

Does cork infill limit granulate agglomeration?

When subject to higher temperatures or increased pressure, non-organic infills, particularly EPDM, tend to soften or agglomerate, creating granules. These agglomerates are hazardous for players and increase the likelihood of injuries. Furthermore, if the performance infill is agglomerated, it loses optimal performance …
