Silverback™ Quiet Strength Made to Last With Sporturf™

Sporturf™ is the leading synthetic turf surface company in the world. Our in house, state-of-the-art laboratory provides us the ability to develop products that exceed the requirements of all the individual sport’s governing bodies around the world. With that comes the knowledge and capability to have one of the best backings on the market, Silverback™.

Silverback™ is the result of our specialty Polyurethane backing recipe. Silverback™ coating saturates the primary backing of the synthetic turf and effectively locks the turf blades in place. While most polyurethane backings are a coating simply scraped over the primary backing, Silverback™ actually penetrates into the tuft, surrounding every stitch locking the fibers into the primary backing. This process produces tuft lock well above the industry standard.

The components that make up Silverback™ are simple. It is, at its core, a heat activated polyurethane with zero vegetable-based polyols, forming the best polyurethane backing available in today’s market. When you have Silverback™ as your backing, you know you have the quiet strength required by today’s consumers, regardless of the application.

So if you need turf that is going withstand a beating, with the science and quality to back you up then Sporturf™ is what you need.

Tyron Woodley

Tyron Woodley Visits Sporturf for Employee Event!

On Thursday September 21, Controlled Products and Sporturf™ held a private event for employees and invited Combat Turf™ promoter and three-time welterweight champion Tyron Woodley to speak and have lunch with employees.

Tyron had humble beginnings; a single mother raised him in Ferguson, Missouri with a dozen brothers and sisters. Suffice it to say money was stretched to the limits and if Tyron wanted to participate in sports, he needed to choose wisely and cost effectively. This is where his wrestling career began.

Tyron Speaking

Tyron continued to wrestle through high school and college becoming a two-time All-American and Big 12 Champion at University of Missouri.

After completing college, Woodley turned to mixed martial arts and began training for the octagon.  Since entering the professional world of MMA Woodley has won three title fights and owns his own gym called ATT Evolution. Recently, he has gotten into acting and stunt performance and had roles in films such as Straight Outta Compton and Olympus Has Fallen.

Sporturf is proud to be have Tyron as a member of the team!

North Little Rock Middle School Chooses Sporturf

Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals was hired as part of a large construction project on the campus of North Little Rock Middle School. Part of the project converted a courtyard area to a “zero maintenance” area that would be used for sports and events. In addition to the FastGrass AT740 play field in the courtyard, the school added several concrete basketball courts to round out the project.

Sporturf’s AT740 is a non-rubber infilled turf has all the advantages of previous generations and perform even higher in wear and resistance tests. The blend of nylon and polyethylene is an almost perfect 50/50 combination. This gives you the true ball roll of a traditional synthetic turf field, with the softness of the new generation rubber-filled turf. No rubber infill makes maintenance easier. These systems can also be portable with added 4” or 8” Velcro

Schlitt Park Upgrades Baseball Field with Sporturf™

Recently Sporturf™ dealer, All Synthetic Group-Midwest, and J & L Strawn Sports Construction installed a project at the legendary Schlitt Park located in Springfield, IL. Schlitt Parke is a 5-acre neighborhood park that was added to the park system in 1971.
Jeremy Strawn of All Synthetic Group-Midwest stated, “A few months ago ASG and J&L Strawn Sports Construction were approached about designing and renovating a local field here in Springfield, a field that over the years has become a staple in the Springfield Baseball community and a place where so many kids over the years hit their first ball…and now those kids are parents who are bringing their kids to play there too.”
Springfield Southwest Baseball Association and the Springfield Park District wanted to transform and equip Schlitt Park with lighting upgrades, backstop fencing, netting, windscreens, dugouts, press box and an all-weather synthetic infield. All together, this created a dramatic change in the facility and made the field suitable for play for years to come.
