Currently installed in over 10 000 fields worldwide, crumb rubber infill systems have proven to offer superior or equivalent performance, safety and durability when compared to competitive infill products. One of the many key advantages of crumb rubber is that it requires little to no maintenance and has shown to last more than one field life cycle with no or little loss of performance.
Cryogenic (SBR) rubber is the cleanest, highest grade of rubber granule. Ground-up recycled tires are cryogenically frozen then shattered into small, smooth-edged particles. This smooth shape facilitates a consistent flow of water through the infill without raising and displacing any rubber while allowing rubber and sand to remain in suspension in a layered system - the optimal mix for a safe and consistent playing surface.
Ambient (SBR) Rubber is an environmental, cost-efficient, and durable solution that has withstood the test of time. Processed through a rubber cracker mill at ambient temperature, the result is a more jagged rubber granule than its cryogenic cousin, creating a looser infill with air pockets which can lead to infill migration.
FieldTurf tested all known organic infill materials in the marketplace today and found cork to be superior in all major categories as it relates to the environment, safety, performance, and durability. PureFill cork has a long list of benefits for athletes and field owners. FieldTurf’s PureFill cork infill is a natural infill that is 100% environmentfriendly and non-toxic. It is an organic, recyclable and sustainable product that is harvested from the cork oak tree every nine years, without harming the trees.
