The shelf life of artificial turf is generally 5 8 years, so it is normal for some lawns that have been used for too long to age. After all, the service life of artificial turf is limited;
Although the aging of artificial turf is uncontrollable, we can use some methods to judge whether it is aging and prolong its service life and duration as much as possible.
1. The grass fiber has fluff, pilling and chalking
This is one of the most obvious characteristics of judging the aging of artificial turf. Generally, artificial turf in football fields will have this problem in the process of using it. Some schools with high frequency of use are the most obvious. High-intensity competition and long-term use have greatly accelerated The service life of artificial turf, if the quality of diamond monofilament is better, the wear resistance is relatively better, and there will be less pilling and pilling.
2. Grass fibers fall off from the adhesive
The shedding of grass fibers from the back glue is a relatively obvious aging feature. The shedding of grass fibers in artificial turf has a certain relationship with the production process, base fabric, and glue quality. These quality failures directly affect the service life of artificial turf and accelerate aging. speed.
3. The grass fiber fades and fades
There are several reasons for the discoloration of artificial turf grass fibers. One is the unqualified quality of grass fibers, such as anti-aging agents and poor production technology; the other is environmental factors, such as strong ultraviolet radiation in some areas, acid rain corrosion, industrial Pollution, etc.; the third is the quality of the filling accessories, which pollutes the lawn and causes the grass fiber to fade and fade.
4. The artificial turf base fabric is corroded
Corruption of the base fabric is the most basic feature of the aging of artificial turf. Generally, the base fabric is made of PP bottom. The football stadium is exposed to the sun and rain outdoors. Long-term use will also cause the base fabric to crack. If it is not smooth, the base cloth will be immersed in water for a long time, which will cause the corrosion of the base cloth.
5. The gap between artificial turf joints is getting bigger and bigger
Everyone knows that the connection between lawns is spliced through the connection, and the special artificial turf glue is glued on, but after all, the raw material of artificial turf is PE, and it is normal for the gap at the splicing to become larger and larger due to long-term stepping and use. Condition. It is also a manifestation of the aging of artificial turf.
