The Alternate Infill for Synthetic Turf: Futrfill TPE

    Environmentally-conscious infill, from Target Technologies Int. Inc.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 17 /CNW/ -- Having choices that
emphasize sustainability - this is most desirable for today's highly
sophisticated artificial/synthetic turf buyers. Introducing Target
Technologies' (TTII) new Futrfill TPE infill. Owing to its new affiliation
with TDL Plastics of Corpus Christi, Texas, TTII is ready to offer this
premium synthetic turf infill material across North America. Futrfill TPE is a
completely recyclable/reusable infilling product, ranking it amongst the most
sustainable, environmentally-conscious infill materials on the market today.


    Futrfill TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) is derived from an
environmentally inert material that is heavy metal, phthalate, biphenyl A, and
vinyl free. Utilizing a known virgin material as a feedstock for Futrfill -
consisting of the same base polymer as used in many food and milk container
applications - TTII & TDL have created a revolutionary infill product.
Futrfill maintains the elasticity and compression set of traditional synthetic
materials, while emphasizing the sustainability and recyclability that buyers
are looking for - in alternate synthetic turf infills.

    While announcing the addition of Futrfill to its infill line-up, TTII's
managing director - John Giraud, stated: "Everyday we are asked, 'What's the
best approach for infilling our new synthetic turf field?' At Target
Technologies, our belief is simple: offer a selection of high-quality
infilling alternatives, all best in their particular class. The addition of
Futrfill TPE couldn't come at a more opportune time for the industry; this is
a product ideally suited not only for infill but also running tracks, mats,
and playgrounds."

    By using only virgin thermoplastic materials, colorants, and stabilizers,
the perfect look and feel of an infill product has been achieved - without
relying on heavy loading of mineral or other fillers. This polymer-only option
not only enhances color stability but also ensures product durability over the
life of the field. And, Futrfill has a lower specific gravity than other
synthetic options, equating to more coverage with fewer pounds of infill. Also
by using an unfilled thermoplastic as a base, Futrfill will be 100% recyclable
at the end of the field's life cycle.
