Our Revolutionary Backing

Dura Flo

Synthetic Turf Solutions of Minnesota synthetic turf fields are backed by the best. We offer a variety of styles with traditional urethane backing and eco friendly options featuring DuraFlo backing.

All polyolefin backing system 100% recyclable

The process incorporates an all polyolefin system which includes:
  • A polyolefin adhesive is applied to the back of a tufted greige synthetic turf
  • A polypropylene nonwoven geotextile is then applied as a secondary backing reinforcement
  • A brief, low-temperature bonding method, without fillers or other bonding agents, completes the process
Our advanced DuraFlo backing system:
  • Allows turf system to drain quickly
  • Resists clogging
  • Locks grass tufts into place
  • Enhances dimensional stability
  • Allows turf to conform to slopes & contours
DuraFlo backing is a polyolefin geotextile:
  • Turf is 100% polyolefin
  • Turf is 100% recyclable
Terminology and More

Yarn Types

 

Polypropylene

These fibers have a high work of rupture, which indicates a tough fiber.  Polypropylene fibers provide greater coverage per pound than any other fiber, they are highly resistant to mechanical abuse and chemical attack.

 

  
(LSR(PE) - Shown with fibrillation)

Polyethylene

These fibers have a low specific gravity, extremely low moisture regain, the same tensile strength wet and dry, and are resistant to attack by mildew and insects.  Known as the softer, less abrasive fibers.

  
(Monofilament (PE))

Nylon

These fibers exhibit excellent strength, flexibility, toughness, elasticity, abrasion resistance, wash ability, ease of drying, and resistance to attack by insects and microorganisms.  Nylon is known to have greater moisture regain than polypropylene and polyethylene fibers.

Textile Terminology Dictionary

Degradation

The loss of desirable physical properties by a textile material as a result of some process or physical/chemical phenomenon
(e.g. U/V degradation).

Denier

A weight-per-unit length measure of any linear material. Officially, it is the number of unit weights of 0.05 grams per 450 meter length.

Gauge

Measured distance between stitch rows (i.e. 3/8, ½).

Greige

Unfinished fabric (turf) just off the loom or tufting machine.

Primary Backing

The material, usually woven or nonwoven polypropylene or jute, into which carpet (turf) is tufted.

Secondary Backing

Term used to describe attached polymeric back coatings such as urethane and latex foam (or woven or nonwoven fabric reinforcement) laminated to the back of the tufted carpet to enhance dimensional stability, strength, stretch resistance, and stiffness.

Shearing

A dry finishing operation in which projecting fibers are mechanically cut or trimmed from the face of the fabric.

Tufting

A type of textile weaving in which a thread is inserted on a primary base.

Different Secondary Backings

  Urethane
  • The black coating on the back of artificial turf
  • Can be hole-punched for drainage
  Urethane Cushion
  • Foam backing created during chemical/mechanical reaction
  • Standard thickness is 3mm, 5mm, 8mm


  Natural Rubber Action Back
  • Natural rubber latex coating with a laminated action back scrim
  Unitary
  • A secondary coating of high-rubber-content latex or a resin melt applied to the primary backing to increase tuft bind
  Action Back
  • A woven polypropylene scrim applied to the primary backing to increase tuft bind
