The infill is a key element in the artificial turf system, because it sets the quality and performance characteristichs of the playing surface.

 

The infill layer, in fact, creates the right shock absorption, ball bounce, torsion, and affects the sliding performance. Also, it aids the fibers in bending back to their original position and contributes to a consistent performance. Thanks to the infill layer, the studs of the players' shoes find their foothold.

 

The infill should be:

  • smooth and safe for the skin in order to prevent burns and to contribute to the sliding performance
  • well protected against ageing factors like sunlight, ozone and rain
  • safe for the environment and the health of the players
  • enhance players' enjoyment of the game.
