Hellas Sports Construction announces exclusive Proline® seaming system to its field installation process and green initiatives.
The greenest synthetic turf adhesive in the U.S., Proline is non-carcinogenic, containing no solvents or Isocynanate and less than 2% VOC (volatile organic compounds).

Many artificial grass adhesives on the market today contain Isocyanates and solvents, and users are typically unaware of the health risks. “Isocyanates can be harmful if inhaled and it can cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory system and skin,” Lasse Holm, Manager for Akzo Nobel Bygglim. “Hellas has taken environmental responsibility and employee safety to the next level with the adoption of Proline.”

“Proline gives us the ability to install fields both indoor and outdoor without comprising the health of our workers, it’s easy to use and the results are superior over all other products on the market,” said Bruce V. Layman, vice president of operations at Hellas Construction. “Combined with the 8-year seam rupture warranty, the only one of its kind in the world, it’s a win-win for Hellas and our customers.”
