Silverback™ is the Quiet Strength Made to Last With Sporturf™

 

Sporturf™ is still 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.

Sporturf™ Leads the Turf Industry with ArmorLoc™ 3

Sporturf™ is an industry leading synthetic turf company. 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 backing systems on the market today, in the form of ArmorLoc™ 3L. ArmorLoc™ 3L utilizes a complete knitted system as the foundation to deliver the world’s strongest artificial turf system.

  • Unmatched Strength –
    • Extremely high tear strength. This strength provides the necessary proprieties that reduce the incidence of a rip or a tear in the product. This is due to the knitted layers all working together like the tight weave of a basket or a carpet.
    • Provides a better mechanical bond when utilized with Silverback™ and specialized fiber
  • Restorative –
    • During the manufacturing process we poke thousands of holes in the product. The ArmorLoc™ 3L is designed to self-heal and fill with Silverback™ once the needle is extracted. Compressing around the yarn.
    • Other products leave open gaps because the general construction does not self-close. This reduces the overall strength of their products and reduces tuft bind properties.
  • No absorption –
    • ArmorLoc™ 3L is moisture and rot resistant. Competitors’ products that utilize an absorbent material like embedded fleece tend to absorb moisture and retain odors.
    • Other products that retain moisture present perfect conditions to rot over time.
  • Improved Dimensional Stability
    • Less movement after the installation and over the life of the product. Some folks call this “creep.”
    • This improved stability addresses extreme temperature variations over the life of the product. Temperature variations make competitor’s products move excessively and is a major cause for callbacks and failures.
    • The way ArmorLoc™ 3L is manufactured directly enhances this performance.
    • Improves the installation process and lends to straighter cuts and lines even for sport applications.
  • Manufactured woven and stitched together before fabrication
    • Competitors take two or three backings and physically stitch them together when they tuft the product. This aftermarket fabrication method lessens the overall quality of the product. When competitors do this they are trying to save money by stitching together two lesser backings with the hope of creating a stronger backing.
    • The two backings tend to move at different rates in the fabrication process leading to non-uniform product characteristics.
