Target Technologies International Inc. (TTII) and Greenplay Organics, LLC are pleased to offer



PFC Proformance Cork is a 100% organic and natural infill that offers a wide range of benefits for synthetic turf systems especially where water availability is at a minimum. PFC Proformance Cork systems offer performance and safety while reducing turf temperatures, GMax and HIC (concussion) ratings of the playing surface.

“Due to a demand from the industry,” John B. Giraud, Managing Director of TTII states “we’re proud to offer PFC Proformance Cork infill.  TTII believes in offering high performance quality infills that are consistent in playability and safety – this natural infill meets these requirements and has been successfully used on FIFA 1 and FIFA 2 projects. PFC Proformance Cork infill, TTII’s Power of the Pad and silica sand is an excellent system we now provide to the industry”.


PFC Proformance Cork is carefully sourced and sorted to provide high quality and consistent natural infill granules in a medium density.  Recent tests have proven that our medium density (140 kg/m3) PFC Proformance Cork far out lasts typical granular cork with densities of 200 kg/m3 or higher (HDC).  The analysis clearly proves that higher density cork granules lose resiliency and mass under stress.  PFC maintains its resiliency and performance characteristics under the same conditions and this is why we offer a ten year warranty to the synthetic turf industry against degradation and performance. With varying requirements for cork we also offer a ‘high-density’ in order to meet any designers’ need for any application.

Our PFC Proformance Cork is truly organic and naturally processed to ensure the purest and most environmentally sound turf infill that will enhance any turf specification and make it more compatible with nature. PFC Proformance Cork is non-flammable, resilient and less abrasive than synthetic infills while 100% recyclable. A good portion can be re-purposed into a replacement field at end of life or into the natural surroundings with no negative environmental impact.

Domenic Carapella, President of GREENPLAY® is pleased to have TTII distributing not only the PFC Performance Cork infill but also the GREENPLAY® Organic Corkonut Infill.  “For the past 44 years TTII has offered quality silica sand North America wide for ballast and infill – it is such a natural fit between our two companies. Our partnership has allowed us to greatly exceed our distribution expectations in the synthetic turf marketplace. ”

In keeping with TTII’s environmental outlook PFC Proformance Cork is compliant with all ecological and environmental parameters because it is produced from natural, pesticide free materials providing a natural resistance to mold and fungus and is 100% recyclable.

Tampa Bay Rays’ Tropicana Field – St. Petersburg, FL

In time for opening day, Tropicana Field will have a new look as the Tampa Bay Rays are getting a new synthetic turf playing field.

For the fifth time in 20 years the Tampa Bay Rays will be getting a playing surface at Tropicana Field that is a truer surface and is easier on the players.

When Tropicana Field opened the doors for baseball in 1998, the “Devil-Rays” played on a flat synthetic surface with no padding at all underneath.

These fields have sure come a long way and we are very pleased to be a part of this advancement with supplying our high-quality infill sport field sand.

The Shipyard Complex – Mount Pleasant, SC

Construction of a 20-acre waterfront baseball complex with five playing fields and an indoor training building is well under way on the eastern banks of the Wando River in Mount Pleasant, SC.   This one of a kind, state-of-the-art facility has been described as a “Disneyland for baseball” in a most unique and beautiful setting.

The Shipyard Park complex is a place for players to train and compete, from youth sports to training programs for collegiate and even major league players.

An estimated 400,000 square feet of synthetic turf will be used to create five baseball fields and a large, warehouse-like building suitable for indoor practice.  Opening date will depend on the weather, as construction moves forward.

Target Technologies is very pleased to supply the high-quality infill sand right from our South Carolina plant.
