Materials that make a difference
TenCate Grass is the world's leading producer of quality synthetic grass fibers and components. We develop, manufacture, and provide innovative synthetic grass fiber, primary backing, and infill material solutions that enhance the overall performance of our partners' synthetic turf systems.
A synthetic sport field exists not only as the visible top layer, the grass fibers and the infill material, but also as the several structural layers underneath. These separate materials combine to form the synthetic turf system and provide the playing characteristics necessary to meet the performance standards of a given sport. In actual terms, each field must play perfectly, ball behavor must be ideal, and surface conditions must be consistent. Only a properly designed turf system made up of quality components can deliver this level of performance.
Integrated system design
Over the past decades TenCate Grass has acquired a great deal of knowledge about synthetic grass fibers and the related system components such as infill material, primary backings and subbases. This knowledge has provided TenCate Grass with a solid basis for developing and promoting an integrated systems approach. The benefit? The field owner and the sportsmen receive the guarantee that a properly maintained field featuring Thiolon branded components will perform well not just for the first year after installation, but for the entire period of its usable life.
The development of integrated system designs occurs in cooperation with our global partners.
