TTII ProFormance Cork (PFC)
TTII ProFormance Cork (PFC) – this unique, stand-alone cork infill, available exclusively through TTII or Greenplay is a high-durability, high-performance cork that has been successfully utilized in hot, cold and wet climates across Europe and North America. Cork does not absorb water so dries very quickly after heavy rains.
TTII ProFormance Cork (PFC) 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.
**When specified our proprietary PFC Cork is available to all bidders**
What’s really great about this product?
♦ You need LESS per sq. ft. than high-density corks ♦
With a typical 2″ turf you would need 3/4 lb per sq. ft.
compared to 1 lb per sq. ft. of high density cork
BOTTOM LINE IS OVERALL SAVINGS TO YOU
100% Naturally organic
Percolates 50% more water than a high density cork
Enhanced Gmax for safety
Reduced turf temperatures
Resistant to compaction
A good portion can be repurposed into a replacement field
100% recyclable into nature
Will not harbor bacteria
Works exceptionally well in all climates
10 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
Recent tests have proven that our medium density (140 kg/m3) PFC granular cork far out lasts typical granular cork with densities of 200 kg/m3 or higher (HDC).
Sports Labs USA was commissioned to perform a modified LA Abrasion test to show the different amount of breakdown of both medium and high density cork. Both density samples were subjected to 1000 revolutions within the LA Abrasion machine.
PFC experienced minimal deformation of only 0.2 mm of the finer particles with a bulk density increase of only 5 kg/m3. HDC experienced additional deformation of 0.5 mm of the most important larger particles with a bulk density increase of 65 kg/m3
This analysis clearly proves that higher density cork granules lose resiliency and mass under stress. PFC maintains its resiliency and performance characteristics under the same condition and why we offer a ten year warranty against degradation and performance.
The recent Lisport test conducted between PFC ProFormance Cork and high density cork (HDC) clearly shows PFC superiority netting higher shock absorption values, lower impact attenuation or Gmax values, lower rotational resistance values, a higher infiltration rate, high vertical deformation values and lower energy return values after 20,000 cycles of Lisport simulated wear.
