What is Infill and How is it Used in Artificial Grass?

Infill refers to the products that are placed in between the fibers of artificial grass, or the synthetic grass blades. The purpose of infill is to help the grass blades stand up, or return back to their intended upright position after they have been exposed to pressure. Additionally, infill helps to shield the backing used on artificial turf from the damage that is caused by UV rays.

Not only does infill help to maintain the look of faux turf, but it also helps to gives it the feel of natural grass. Infill mimics the impact absorption qualities of the soil under real grass, thus, you will feel as if you are walking on real grass. Another benefit of infill is that it helps to weigh down artificial turf, preventing it from developing wrinkles, buckles, or ripples that can occur as a result of movement. It also aids in turf drainage, which means you won’t have to deal with pooling water after it rains or if your faux grass is exposed to any other type of precipitation.

If you are going to install artificial turf in areas that receive a lot of foot traffic, or are exposed to any other form of pressure, you definitely want to make sure you purchase a product that contains infill.

Types of Artificial Grass Infill Materials

In natural grass, nutrients are sent from the roots up to through the blades. This process makes the blades of natural grass very resilient. In artificial grass, this process does not exist, which can make the blades of fake turf less resilient. High-quality artificial turfs feature a durable backing, which supports the faux grass blades and can help the artificial turf bounce back into its original place, making it more resilient. However, relying on the backing alone to return the grass blades back to their upright position is often not enough. Even if the backing is made of the highest quality, durable materials, it will not always ensure that the grass blades will return to their original position.

That’s where infill comes into play. If you’re interested in purchasing faux grass turf and you want it to stay as good-looking as possible for as long as possible, you are going to want to choose an artificial turf that features infill.

T°Cool Infill-How It Works

T°Cool® Infill

T°Cool® Infill is a newer type of artificial grass infill that cools artificial grass through a process of evaporative cooling. This is the best infill for pet-friendly turf applications as it keeps the turf cooler by as much as 30° – 50° F.

Rounded Silica Sand Infill

Silica Sand Infill

Silica sand is derived of quartz that has been eroded by wind and water. As the quartz erodes, it breaks down into small granules. This material is used in several commercial applications, including artificial grass infill.
