Recently in the United States the Christian Unified School District of San Diego (California) and the Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park (Buffalo, New York) acquired synthetic turf fields based on TenCate XQ™ technology.

The fields are based on the TenCate Monoslide Ultra™ synthetic grass fibre with TenCate XQ™ technology and the TenCate XP Blade™ synthetic grass fibre.


The combination of this technology and these synthetic grass fibres offers the best of two worlds and the result is a sports surface with optimal and sustainable playing characteristics that looks like a natural grass field in top condition.

TenCate Monoslide Ultra™ synthetic grass fibre with TenCate XQ™ technology and TenCate XP Blade™ synthetic grass fibre offers the best of two worlds. The monofilament synthetic grass fibres feature a ribbed crescent shape. The crescent-shaped structure developed by TenCate ensures resilience and a natural appearance. This 3D structure performs best in conjunction with the patented TenCate XQ™ technology. This ensures the necessary strength to withstand the most significant stresses on the synthetic grass fibres. TenCate XP Blade™ has been used in the installation of more than 3,500 sports fields and playing surfaces worldwide over the last eight years.
