As a FIFA Preferred Producer, Act Global manufactures a range of high-performing football turf, using FIFA benchmarks for quality standards and sport performance. Xtreme Turf is engineered to provide the optimal combination of durability, performance, ball roll, player-to-surface interaction, climatic resistance, speed and traction.
SIMULATED WEAR & ABRASION RESISTANCE
The surface is artificially abraded (simulation of multiple years
of wear) and tested for: Shock Absorption, Vertical
Deformation, Vertical Ball Rebound, and Rotational Resistance
Measures the maximum force recorded to destroy the joints where
they are sewn or adhered with adhesive.
UV / Water / Heat - Measures the color change, abrasion resistance
and joint strength.
SHOCK ABSORPTION & VERTICAL DEFORMATION
Measures the impact absorption provided by synthetic turf to a
player running or falling on as well as the foot stability of
the surface as a player runs across it
Measures the interaction between the shoe sole and the surface
of artificial grass relating to the ability of a player to change
Measures how much infill is encapsulated and how much is splashed during play
SLIP RESISTANCE SCALE & DECELERATION
Measures the ability of studs to slide through the surface without
causing the player to slip over. Slip resistance deceleration
measures the deceleration experienced by the players shoe as it
makes contact with the surface. If the deceleration is too high,
damages to joints and ligaments may occur.
SKIN ABRASION/ SKIN FRICTION
Measures the abrasiveness and friction of artificial turf on the
skin of the player when sliding.
VERTICAL BALL REBOUND
Measures how high the ball bounces when falling vertically onto
a synthetic turf field.
Measures how far the ball rolls onto synthetic grass compared
to natural grass.
ANGLE BALL REBOUND
Measures how the ball rebounds from an artificial turf surface
when striking it at a shallow angle under dry and wet conditions.
