What is the material of artificial grass?

How to distinguish artificial grass?

Appearance: Bright color with no color difference; Grass seedlings are flat, with even tufts and good consistency; The amount of adhesive used for the bottom lining is moderate and penetrates into the bottom lining, resulting in an overall flatness, uniform needle spacing, and no skipped or missed stitches;

Hand feel: The grass seedlings are soft and smooth when combed by hand, with good elasticity when lightly pressed by the palm, and the bottom lining is not easy to tear;

Grass silk: The mesh is clean and free of burrs; The incision is flat without significant shrinkage;

Other materials: Check if high-quality materials are used for the glue and bottom production.



How long is the service life of artificial turf?

The service life of artificial turf is related to the duration and intensity of exercise, as well as sunlight and ultraviolet rays. Different areas and usage times can affect the service life of artificial turf. So the service life of artificial turf is influenced by many factors, and the service life is also different.



What auxiliary materials are needed for the paving of artificial turf on a football field? Do you need these accessories to purchase any artificial grass?

 Artificial lawn accessories include glue, splicing tape, white line, particles, quartz sand, etc; But not all purchases of artificial grass require these. Usually, leisure artificial grass only requires glue and splicing tape, without the need for black glue particles or quartz sand.



How to clean artificial lawns?

Therefore, the maintenance work of football fields must include regular cleaning.

What is the line spacing of artificial grass?

Line spacing is the distance between rows of grass lines, usually measured in inches. Below 1 inch=2.54cm, there are several common line spacing devices: 3/4, 3/8, 3/16, 5/8, 1/2 inch. (For example, 3/4 stitch spacing means 3/4 * 2.54cm=1.905cm; 5/8 stitch spacing means 5/8 * 2.54cm=1.588cm)


What does the needle count of artificial turf mean?

The number of needles in an artificial lawn refers to the number of needles per 10cm. On a unit of every 10cm. The same needle pitch, the more needles there are, the higher the density of the lawn. On the contrary, the sparser it is.


What are the usage amounts of artificial lawn accessories?

What is the density of artificial grass? How to calculate?

Cluster density is an important indicator of artificial grass, referring to the number of cluster needles per square meter. Taking the weaving distance of 20 stitches/10CM as an example, if it is 3/4 row spacing (1.905cm), the number of rows per meter is 52.5 (rows=per meter/row spacing; 100cm/1.905cm=52.5), and the number of stitches per meter is 200, then the pile density=rows * stitches (52.5 * 200=10500); So 3/8, 3/16, 5/8, 5/16 and so on, 21000, 42000, 12600, 25200, etc.
