VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 6, 2018 /CNW/ -- TTII ProFormance Cork (PFC) is a 100% natural, organic infill that offers a phenomenal amount of benefits for synthetic turf systems
percolates 50% more water than high density cork, yes 50%! No ponding water worries like with high density corks
reduces turf temperature
works exceptionally well in dry or wet climates
reduces Gmax and HIC concussion ratings
the only cork infill on the market with a 10-year warranty
Recent tests have proven that our ProFormance Cork (PFC) at a density of 125-140 kg/m3 is significantly more durable than common "bark crush" cork with densities of 200 kg/m3 or higher. This comprehensive lisport test comparing the two cork densities under the same conditions clearly proves that higher density granules lose resiliency and mass under stress with the material breaking down into fines that cause drainage issues. ProFormance Cork (PFC) sourced closer to the core of the tree maintains its resiliency and consistent performance and drainage characteristics.
ProFormance Cork (PFC) costs less per square foot because you need less per square foot. Although PFC costs more per pound than higher density cork, you only require ¾ of a lb per sq. ft. as opposed to higher density cork requiring a minimum of 1 lb – bottom line is PFC is more cost effective
ProFormance Cork (PFC) is naturally processed with the strictest quality control to ensure the purest and most environmentally sound infill to enhance any turf specification, making it more compatible with nature. Its purity is maintained from a natural, pesticide free harvest with a natural resistance to mold and fungus
REUSEABLE ● RECYCLABLE
At end of life cycle, a good portion can be re-purposed into a replacement field or it can be 100% recycled back into natural surroundings with no negative environmental impact
