Materials of artificial grass yarn: PA(nylon) PP(polypropylene), PE(polyethylene)
Most of the artificial grass turf adopt the PE yarn. PA is good in wear-resisting property, but too hard and easy to burn the skin of athletes, mainly be used for the landscaping turf. PP is used very few since its lower wear-resisting property and short lifetime. PE mainly be used for the sports artificial turf with its good wear-resisting property and soft feature.
Shape of the grass yarn: fibrillate yarn, monofilament yarn
Artificial grass with fibrillated yarn had been installed lots of in china with reasonable cost in past years, Monofilament yarn artificial turf become more and more popular recently with its beautiful appearance approximate the nature grass, excellent wear-resisting property, but the cost higher than fibrillate grass yarn.
Fibrillated grass yarn has a net side face, while the monofilament yarn is totally separated. The extrusion is used for monofilament production.
The reason for the shift to monofilament was because fibrillated yarns show signs of wearing out in 4 – 7 years due to the continued separating of the yarns.The monofilament tests show that the wear tolerance would last approximately 3 times longer.
A good monofilament turf is suitable for any ball game sport.
The Pile Height of the soccer artificial grass is 60mm in the Euro market, while it is 40-50mm in domestic market. Same Density artificial grass, the bigger pile height, the higher purchase cost and need more infilling materials (rubber Granule, Sands)and labor cost. 50MM is ok for the common use.
