Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a modern alternative to SBR. It has the shock-absorbent qualities of SBR and the product is said to be stable, meaning that it does not break down easily. It is a product that can be recycled at the end of its useful life, making it an environmentally friendly solution. The elastic property of TPE means that it regains its original shape after compression, so that the synthetic grass field always looks fresh. No recycled products are used in the production of TPE.
Comparing to traditional infill material such as SBR, EPDM granule, TPE has so many advantage as follow:
1. Great sport/touch performance, suitable for both sports field and leisure field 2. 100% recycled, totally environmentally friendly 3. No carcinogenic substance, odour and crumbed powder, no harmful to health 4. Low heat absorption, compatible with artificial grass surfacing system 5. Extremely UV-resistant
