(Thermo Plastic Elastomer) is derived from an environmentally inert material that is heavy metal, phthalate, biphenyl A, and vinyl free. The polyethylene-based polymer utilized is the same as used in such diverse applications as heart stents, electrical wire coating, athletic shoes, and many food and beverage containers. The result is a revolutionary infill product. FutrFill maintains the elasticity and compression set of traditional synthetic materials, while emphasizing the sustainability and
recyclability that buyers are looking for - with alternate synthetic turf infills.
Due to its smooth surface texture FutrFill resists compaction, offers minimal impact on field drainage systems, and is less abrasive to the turf fibers – and to the athletes utilizing the field. Clean in appearance and odor-free, let FutrFill enhance the appearance and value of your next synthetic turf surface.
FutrFill: Flame-Retardant to ASTM E648
Some TPE infills on the market have been found to achieve fire retardant ratings through less than environmentally-conscious means - specifically, through the use of non-vulcanized SBR or EPDM fillers. Not so with Target Technologies new FutrFill - our TPE turf infill contains an inert, halogen-free organic additive. In recent testing - utilizing ASTM E648 (Standard test method for critical radiant flux of floor covering systems, using a radiant energy source), & in conjunction with sand infill and turf, FutrFill achieved a Class I rating.
Perfect for Indoor-Arenas & Sports Faciliites
Now with the prevalence of indoor-artificial turf playing surfaces becoming so common
in North America, the challenge for architects, engineers and field designers has been to select a safe, high-performance infill for these facilities. FutrFills E648 Class I fire retardant rating - along with its high-performance characteristics - makes this TPE infill product ideal for use in closed, covered or indoor arenas and stadiums
The Right Color - for the right application
Initially available in green, expect FutrFill to deliver a substantial heat reduction – when compared to some traditional turf infill materials. The reason is simple: some green colors are dark in shading which generates heat. FutrFill TPE green is lighter in color, reducing heat-retention. And, our green is designed to be light stable - helping to retain original field color.
Superior Technology - Superior Performance
By using only the best virgin thermoplastic materials, colorants, and stabilizers, the perfect look and feel of a synthetic turf infill product has been achieved. FutrFill has a long term color stabilization package which ensures top of class color fastness. Our engineered, semi-ovoid shaped TPE ensures product durability over the life of the field
by ensuring better compression set, longer elastic life, and minimal loss of infill due to wear. This wear causes size reduction of other shape choices over the life of the field. For athletes FutrFill will roll slightly and offers excellent foot control
- which causes fewer injuries to players.
The shape of the material won't allow it to be ground down into a finer particle size and dust - unlike regrind or irregular shape infill will. This keeps dust down over the life of the product and helps to maintain the pellet integrity. These factors create a product that leaves the competition behind.
Where "fly-zone" is a concern.........Target Technologies FutrFill TPE infill has a specific gravity greater than water - meaning no particle floatation will occur during periods of heavy rainfall.
100% virgin material – no toxic fillers or additives
Some imported plastic synthetic turf infills - particularly those that are recycled or laced with "unknown fillers" - have been shown to contain lead, minerals, and other heavy metals. Not so with FutrFill
. With FutrFill you get a material that is comprised of 100% virgin resins and additives, including only top-of-the-line color pigments and UV
stabilizers. Not only does this ensure longer-life of the product, but also - because the exact chemical composition of FutrFill is known - the safety of your clients and theirs is maintained.
And for cold-climate performance....choose FutrFill TPE. The choice of virgin base-resins not only ensures maximum performance, but also maintains granule integrity in cold weather conditions.
Ease of Installation - better playability
Because Target Technologies' FutrFill TPE contains no dust particulates, with uniform granule shape, this allows for more even granule dispersion during installation. Because FutrFill is so clean there is no fear of drainage problems on the field. And, when athletes slide on the turf no dust is raised - enhancing player experiences during the game.
Sustainability: 100% pure/100% recyclable
Now more than ever forward-thinking state governments, municipalities, school boards and colleges are including considerations for end-of-life in their bidding process - for artificial turf field construction. Land filling of old worn-out fields is becoming more and more restricted, and will eventually be phased out in most jurisdictions.
As its name suggests, FutrFill
is the premium 21st century infilling solution for the life-cycle of your
next synthetic turf surface installation. Futuristic in design – futuristic in sustainability. By virtue of its pure, unfilled nature – you can expect FutrFill to deliver enhanced value in the recycled plastics market, at the field’s end-of-life period.
As worldwide demand for polymer materials is forecast to increase substantially in the coming years – with recyclable FutrFill TPE it may be possible for your clients to totally recoup their investment in this sustainable infill. And look to Target Technologies for your infill recycling needs.
Currently under development is a proprietary method for cost-efficient removal & separation of FutrFill TPE, from old synthetic turf surfaces. This revolutionary process will allow for a) recycling of FutrFill into your next premium synthetic turf field or b) TPE resale on the open market.
FutrFill: the 100% eco-friendly synthetic turf infill, for our time
