30 2017FieldTurf CORE: The World’s First Super FiberFieldTurf is proud to introduce its latest fiber, CORE, the first multi-layer dual-polymer fiber ever. CORE rewrites the playbook for sports turf, reinvents the playing field, and redefines the player experience.Engineered as the premier system for premier fields, CORE is designed to deliver a more realistic, textured, grass-like shape with optimal durability and resiliency.Single-layer polyethylene fibers have built-in limitations. FieldTurf has surpassed the limitations with CORE’s multi-layer technology. The system is constructed to deliver the highest fiber performance and resiliency available on the market. CORE is designed to provide elite high schools, high level collegiate programs and professional teams with a system that exceeds even FieldTurf’s current industry-leading products.Rutgers University is among the first organizations to install CORE at High Point Solutions Stadium. “FieldTurf is one of the great innovators in artificial turf surfaces, and we are pleased to continue our partnership with an industry leader,” said Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Pat Hobbs. “We are committed to providing our coaches and players with best-in-class facilities, and this is another step in that process for all our student-athletes who compete at High Point Solutions Stadium.” “CORE is more than a new groundbreaking fiber for us; it is a platform for future innovations,” said FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “Our entire team has been dedicated to the development of our latest innovation, and it is with great pride that we introduce the first multi-layer dual-polymer fiber in the industry.”Labosport, a global leader in sport surface certification, tested CORE using the rigorous Fiber Performance Index — which measures durability, resilience and softness. The surface emerged with Labosport’s highest-ever FPI score of 89.CORE features FieldTurf’s heavyweight 3-layer infill system which has showcased a significant lower incidence of injuries per recent research by Michael C. Meyers, a professor in Idaho State University’s Department of Sport Science and Physical Education.
