  2. 2. ARTIFICIAL GRASS<br />Kaustubh Nath<br />06text24<br />
  3. 3. Introduction<br />Grass is difficult and expensive to maintain.<br />Grass is hard to grow in some circumstances.<br />Grass gets worn out rapidly if used frequently.<br />
  4. 4. Artificial Grass<br />Ford foundation asks science fraternity to develop synthetic playing surfaces in early 1960s.<br />First artificial grass ‘chemgrass’ launched in 1964.<br />First batch of ‘chemgrass’ installed at astrodome in 1966.<br />
  5. 5. Yarn manufacturing<br />
  6. 6. Turf manufacturing<br />Yarns are selected and spools are set up on the looming equipment.<br />Primary and secondary backing materials are loaded per specification.<br />The loom is set for specified stitch count, tuft gauge and calibrated.<br />Backing materials meet inside the loom and flow over several rollers which hold them tightly together.<br />
  7. 7. Testing <br />FIFA TESTS<br />Player / Surface Interaction Tests <br />Ball / Surface Interaction Tests<br />Vertical Deformation<br />Slip Resistance Scale<br />Slip Resistance Deceleration <br />Ball roll<br />Friction change<br />Shock absorbency<br />Tuft bind<br />Backing strength<br />UV protection<br />All weather playability<br />Low gloss <br />
  8. 8. Installation <br />Using stone and sand<br />Using sand only<br />Temporary<br />
  9. 9. Maintenance & Care <br />Avoid spillages of any petroleum based products on the turf.<br />Maintain longevity, aesthetics, performance<br />Equipments such as drag brushes, hard road-sweeping brushes, high pressure cleaner etc.<br />
  10. 10. Benefits<br />Substitute to natural grass in harsh environment.<br />Can withstand more use.<br />Low maintenance<br />Suitable for urban spaces<br />Save water and money <br />Environment friendly<br />
  11. 11. Market overview<br /><ul><li>Fastest growing segment
  12. 12. Steady annual growth rate of 10-15 %</li></li></ul><li>Known issues<br />Friction between skin and artificial turf causes abrasions and/or burns.<br />Tends to be much hotter when exposed to the sun.<br />Over fibrillation.<br />Poor tuft bind<br />Seam rupture<br />
  13. 13. New innovations<br />AstroShield – inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, mould and mildew fungi. <br />AstroPrint-cost-effective alternative to inlaid logos<br />AlphaSan Antimicrobial Technology -antimicrobial synthetic turf playing surfaces<br />
