Artificial Turf

Access to a football field which is playable all year round is very important for footballers. Synthetic turf makes this possible, but to date it has not been a completely satisfactory solution. On some artificial surfaces, a fall can lead to players suffering friction burns and on others the fibers eventually buckle irreversibly under the constant load. Together with TISCA TIARA, the Polymer & Processing group developed a bicomponent melt-spun fiber which manages to overcome both these problems thanks to its hard core and soft sheath.

Further collaborations

Experience with the bicomponent fiber turf, successfully in the field since 2009, revealed further potential for development. In a follow-up project, area of application and market share of TISCA TIARA's artificial turf shall be expanded, with properties that match specific indoor and outdoor requirements.
