The backing of a synthetic turf pitch provides the strength, dimensional stability and tuftlock of the system. The choice for the right backing in an application is again all about balancing the needs. For example, the backing of a monofilament based American football pitch has other requirements than for a hockey pitch with fibrillated tape synthetic turf fibres.
The key features of a backing are:
- Dimensional stability
Vital role at production and installation
The backing not only plays an important role after the synthetic turf is installed. The use of high-quality backing at the production and installation of synthetic turf also provides many distinct qualitative advantages. The TenCate Backing™ solutions are easy to use, prevent creasing or tension differences and guarantee optimum control. During installation, the dimensional stability and the absence of distortion are especially important features of TenCate Backing™ solutions.
No moving lines over time
TenCate Backing™ solutions are stable and free of tension. Moreover the backings have constant shrinking and outfit properties, which prevent moving lines and damage of seams.
For optimum stitching of the synthetic turf fibres, minimum distortion and simple installation of your synthetic turf, we recommend using TenCate synthetic turf fibres in combination with TenCate backings.
