Types of yarns and fibres in artificial turf
The different types of artificial grass fibres, also called filaments or yarns, are used for the production of synthetic turf.
In this post, we tell you the details about one of the main components of synthetic grass.
The materials from which synthetic fibres are made are usually polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) or polyamide (PA).
Polyamide is mainly used as a supporting fibre in turf and synthetic grasses, it is unusual to see an artificial turf made of 100% polyamide for decorative and ornamental applications.
This is because it is a hard material, produces an unpleasant sound when you walk on it and tends to glow.
