Play safe with SO.F.TER. infill products

 

SO.F.TER. TPE infill products Holo®, Terra® and Forgrin®  are free of hazardous components.

In a recently published news investigation, NBC News raised doubts about the safety of the infill granules obtained by grinded postconsumer tires, used to enhance the shock absorption of artificial turf fields.

SO.F.TER. infill granules, made of non-toxic, virgin Thermoplastic Elastomers are recognised and certified as the safest infill granules on the market and have successfully been installed in more than 900 fields all over the world since 2006.

Given our constant commitment to environmental sustainability and players' safety, we are proud to declare that all our infill products are free of:

  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) as per Document Zek 01-08
  • Heavy metals Phthalates and Perfluorooctane Sulfonates (PFOS), as per European Regulation 1907/2006 annex 17 applicable from 01.06.2009 (REACH)
  • Halogens, as per IEC 61249-2-21
  • Solvents (VOC), as per D.Lgs 152/2006, Art. 268 Listed in the EU directive EN 71.3 (Safety of toys)

Our products do not contain any risk-phrases according to the REACH norm, nor special warnings in Safety Data Sheets. 


SO.F.TER.’s philosophy is to provide customers and end users with TPE infill materials free of hazardous components, safe for the environment and for players’ health!
