Durability

ABRASION RESISTANCE TURF
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

strong joint artificial turf
JOINT STRENGTH
Measures the maximum force recorded to destroy the joints where they are sewn or adhered with adhesive.



CLIMATIC RESISTANCE TURF
CLIMATIC RESISTANCE
UV / Water / Heat - Measures the color change, abrasion resistance and joint strength.


Player/Surface Interaction

SHOCK ABSORPTION TURF
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

ROTATIONAL RESISTANCE SYNTHETIC TURF
ROTATIONAL RESISTANCE
Measures the interaction between the shoe sole and the surface of artificial grass relating to the ability of a player to change direction.

Xtreme Grass INFILL SPLASH artificial turf
INFILL SPLASH
Measures how much infill is encapsulated and how much is splashed during play



Slip resistance deceleration artificial turf
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.

Xtreme Turf artificial grass
SKIN ABRASION/ SKIN FRICTION
Measures the abrasiveness and friction of artificial turf on the skin of the player when sliding.

Ball behaviour

synthetic turf field
VERTICAL BALL REBOUND
Measures how high the ball bounces when falling vertically onto a synthetic turf field.

synthetic grass compared to natural grass
BALL ROLL
Measures how far the ball rolls onto synthetic grass compared to natural grass.



ball rebounds artificial turf surface
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.
