Synthetic turf

SPORTS AND LEISURE | TECHNIGOM

Synthetic turf is used for sports surfaces (most commonly football or rugby pitches). Synthetic leaves replace the grass and beads of Technigom rubber replace the earth.

Products replaced: Technigom replaces the rubber beads manufactured from petroleum products (EPDM) or imported materials that are more expensive and less high-performance (for example, cork).

Technical advantages

  • Game performances preserved over time.
  • No agglomeration of the beads with each other.
  • The device can be used continuously throughout the year as weather conditions (frost, rain, heatwave) have no impact.

Economic advantages

  • Technigom rubber in the form of beads used for synthetic turf is up to 5 times cheaper than other filler materials (EPDM, cork, thermoplastic elastomer…).
  • The performances of Technigom are maintained at least 5 times longer than other filler materials.

Health and environmental safety:

  • Technigom is in conformity with the European REACH legislation: contact with it is harmless to man.
  • Its manufacturing process is in conformity with the Health and Environmental Safety rules in force.
  • No impact on the environment: the rainwater that passes through a filler made of Technigom can be used to water a vegetable garden, for example.
