Our internal QC standards allow our customers to benefit from the safest and most durable synthetic turf fields in the industry.
Montreal, Canada (Vocus) January 6, 2010
In one of the most important technological advancements to come out of the synthetic turf industry, FieldTurf is now guaranteeing a 9 lb tuft bind on its artificial grass products – and is the only company in the industry to do so. This level of quality is achieved through the company's ability to coat and inspect its own products internally. FieldTurf remains the only company in the industry to control all aspects of the manufacturing process. Nothing is left to third parties and nothing is left to chance.
FieldTurf's dedication to controlling all aspects of the manufacturing process has led to the creation of the company's Surelock™ Coating Technology, whereby FieldTurf guarantees the strength of the fibers and their attachment to the backing material - referred to as 'tuft bind'. One of the most important elements of an artificial turf field is the ability for the fibers to stay locked in place over their lifetime. This is a very important factor in measuring short-term and long-term durability and performance of a synthetic turf field.
“It is with great pleasure that we are announcing this new quality standard for tuft bind and fiber security,” stated FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “Current industry suppliers were unable to meet our stringent quality control standards, therefore we elected to develop our own. Our internal QC standards allow our customers to benefit from the safest and most durable synthetic turf fields in the industry. One of the factors in our leadership position in this industry is our strict internal manufacturing standards that allow us to set a high standard for the rest of the industry to follow.”
Unique and exclusive to the world leader in artificial turf, FieldTurf's fibers have been built to last and are the only artificial grass fibers to have withstood the test of time. Combined with the Surelock Coating Technology, the strength of FieldTurf's fibers are unrivaled in the industry.
