The first infill applied to an artificial grass pitch consists of sand, which provides stability. A second layer is applied on top of this - an infill system that provides sliding and shock-absorbing properties. There are different infills available depending on the specifications for the artificial grass project. Very often recycled and shredded rubber infill is used; unfortunately rubber heats up during summer months and generates unpleasant odours. Domo Sports Grass offers a brand new ecological concept: Naturafill.
Naturafill is a 100% organic artificial grass infill material. Pure nature. The cultivation and processing of the cork is also carried out in perfect harmony with nature from start to finish.
Naturafill is composed of 100% high-performance cork, without additives. It is not mixed with other materials, such as rubber or coconut fibres, because a mixture would negatively affect the technical playing properties of the pitch.
Cork is a renewable resource that is regenerated in a natural way.
Cork is an organic product. The cork infill can be completely reused without sacrificing any quality and without producing any waste.
In contrast to traditional rubber infill, which can generate unpleasant odours, cork is a totally organic, odourless substance.
Cork has a low thermal conductance thanks to its cellular structure. This helps to keep the pitch cooler. Naturafill infill heats up as much as 30% less than a pitch with a rubber infill.
Energy restitution values of a pitch with Naturafill are roughly similar to the values measured on a natural pitch.
Cork is moisture proof; it does not absorb moisture, so it cannot get wet from inside either. Thanks to the cork infill, rain will simply drain off.
Naturafill can be used to replace all traditional infill products, such as SBR, EPDM and TPE, and has been successfully tested in an accredited laboratory to both FIFA 1 & 2 STAR standards.
Cork is moisture proof. Microorganisms need water in order to survive, which is why Naturafill is not a viable basis for these organisms.
In case of a cigarette butt or any other burning material ending up on the pitch, Naturafill cork is burn inhibiting.
The maintenance procedures for Naturafill pitches are identical to those for rubber filled pitches.
