    1. CRPA Artificial Turf 101

    2. Overview • Is Artificial Turf right for you? • How to build your field of dreams. • Selecting the proper turf system.

    3. Artificial Turf 101 Is artificial turf right for you?

    4. Why Artificial Turf?

    5. The Benefits

    6. Artificial Turf 101 Building your field of dreams

    11. Artificial Turf 101 SELECTING THE PROPER TURF SYSTEM

    12. 3 Keys A company that I could trust. A fiber that will last the longest. An turf system that delivers performance and safety. 1 2 3

    13. Selecting THE COMPANY

    14. Not all turf companies are created equal.

    15. Beware of the turf broker.

    16. Inspect your warranty. Warranty Tufting Warranty Coating Warranty Yarn Warranty Installation Warranty Yarn Tufting Coating Installation

    17. Selecting THE RIGHT FIBER

    18. Fiber Type • Monofilament • Known for their resilience and aesthetics. • Been in use for over six years with continued success. • Slit-Film • The original fiber system. • Ideal for high use facilities. • Hybrid • “New” Concept, combines Slit-Film and Monofilament fibers. • Over time, the system will look and perform like a Slit-Film system. • Not the best of both worlds, but a compromise.

    19. We asked one question. There has to be a better way.

    20. PPG Process Polymer Geometry

    21. Building the optimal fiber. • Reduced skin abrasion • Superior durability • High resilience • Strong resistance to temperature changes

    22. Polymer • The Problem: • Turf companies have been using plastic bag technology. • Why? • The worldwide demand for PE is 84 million tonnes • The artificial turf industry consumes 0.1% of that demand. • FieldTurf’s Solution • Design and introduce the first artificial turf specific yarn.

    23. Polymer • Polymer Comonomers: • C4 • C6 • C8 • Polymer Catalysts: • Chromium • Ziegler-Natta • Metallocene • Polymer UV Stabilizers

    24. Catalyst in action.

    25. Polymer

    26. Demand better UV testing. FIFA Protocol Xenon Sun Light

    27. UV stabilization. 6,000 ppm of UV Xenon Arc UV Testing 150,000 Lisport Cycles 10,000 ppm of UV Xenon Arc UV Testing 150,000 Lisport Cycles

    28. The optimal process. • Process Problems: • Lines are too short. • Speeds are too fast.

    29. Process • Typical Line • FieldTurf Line

    30. Geometry • It’s all about breaking points.

    32. Selecting BACKING & infill

    33. It starts from the bottom up. Gauge

    34. It starts from the bottom up. • Backing serves three purposes: • Secure the tufts • Keep the carpet wrinkle free • Provide for drainage Finger Unit Perforated / Solid Coated Drainage Rate: 300 inches / hour Drainage Rate: 90 inches / hour

    35. Infill Type • Sand-and-Rubber (3-Layered) Infill • Most intricate and most meticulous system • Best shock absorption and energy restitution • Ultimate in safety and playability • The choice of the NFL

    36. Infill Type • Sand-and-Rubber (heterogeneous mix) Infill • “Common” system with average playability

    37. Infill Type • Sand-and-Rubber (homogeneous mix) Infill • Uncommon, but offered by some • Sand settles on the top of the system, very abrasive

    38. Infill Type • All-Rubber Infill • The least desirable turf system • Unstable, low performance
