Synthetic Turf Wear Resistance Testing Expands to Include Slit-Film Products

Posted: January 20, 2012

In addition to the monofilament synthetic turf wear testing program currently underway, Penn State’s Center for Sports Surface Research is now offering a few lucky facilities the opportunity to have a sample of their new slit-film fiber fields tested for upright fiber wear resistance.

The data will be included in the Synthetic Turf Fiber Wear Test Progress Report available at .

If you are installing a new monofilament or slit-film field at your facility and would like to be considered for our testing, all you have to do is fill out the form on our website. You will also be required to collect a sample at your facility and mail it to us. Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to test all fields being installed but plan to test several of each and every synthetic turf product being installed in today’s marketplace. We plan to test several samples from each available product at least annually.
