The added benefits of this system include better tuft bind
, lower volatile organic compounds, improved moisture barrier, enhanced performance, and stability due to Celceram[TM] content (a highly refined and recycled mineral compound) and overall extended life of the turf.
The flame-retardant polyester spunlaids provide a high dimensional stability, excellent layflat characteristics, excellent tuft bind
, and no fraying edges.
Austin, TX, November 07, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Act Global Sports, a synthetic turf manufacturer with installations in 70 countries, has selected innovative components from BASF to offer a proprietary secondary coating application XtremeLok that will improve tuft bind and increase the life of their artificial turf system.
The technology enhancement improves the locking of the grass fibers into the turf backing, referred to as tuft bind, a result of continued research, development and comparison testing across varying coating technologies.
Integra HP provides long-term appearance value retention, impenetrable moisture barrier, seam integrity, both wet and dry high tuft bind
, no delamination of secondary backing, no edge ravel, no wick-back staining, sound dampening for acoustically sensitive installations, comfort under foot, and dimensional stability.
-- Force required to pull a tuft from a carpet or rug.
* Moisture Barrier ASTM D-1335 (Dry Tuft Bind
- ITTS Test (Wet Tuft Bind
): In these tests, a metal hook is placed on one loop of carpet.
," as this property is known, is a measure of the force needed to pull a fiber out of the backing.
Warranties for commercial carpets cover an array of potential problem areas, and protection may be ensured for resistance, color fastness (resistance to fading from sunlight and atmospheric contaminants), tuft bind
, static protection, seam/edge integrity (resistance to raveling), and backing strength (resistance to delamination).
These processes can be combined with needlepunched fabrics to offer an innovative range of products including Matrix carpet backing, a proprietary differentiated system designed for artificial turf requiring high tuft bind
and made from a woven/nonwoven composite structure.
AdBac contains no latex or fillers, for a carpet that is lighter, easier to handle and install and has excellent tuft bind
. Instead or a layer of latex adhesive, a layer of low-melt polypropylene is used to bind together the primary and secondary backings through heat and pressure.
