Understand the technical parameters of artificial grass
An important parameter for artificial grass is detex. Dtex refers to the length/mass ratio and is measured as the weight of the fibre per 10,000 metre length. A Dtex of, for example, 10,000 means that a fibre with a length of 10,000 metres weighs 1 kilo.
So how to judge the detex of the artificial lawn? For example, the stitch is 10,500, and the height is 50mm. The total length of a tuft of grass is 100mm, and the length of 10 tufts is 1 meter. Put it on the instrument to have a weight, if it is 1 gram, it is 10,000 detex; if it is 0.8 g, it is 8000 detex. This is the theoretical value. the actual value will be greater than this value, because there is a moving pin bending loss under the base cloth of each tuft. So the detex calculated according to the above method must be greater than the detex marked by the artificial grass manufacturer.
Next, let’s take a look at the other parameters.
Density, also known as tuft density, refers to the number of stitches of artificial grass tufts within 1 ㎡. The density depends on the gauge the stitch rate.
Gauge: The gauge is the measure of distance between two lines of stitched artificial grass, which plays an important role in the overall look and feel of your artificial turf
Stitch rate is the number of stitches per inch in the length of a grass carpet. The gauge of a machine does not change but the stitch rate can. So a 1⁄10 gauge carpet with 10 stitches per inch means there are 100 stitches in one square inch of the carpet. The higher this number, the denser the grass carpet.
With the professionalization, industrialization and commercialization of sports such as football, tennis and golf, sports artificial turf industry has made certain progress in recent years, and has gradually embarked on the international stage and played a huge role in the sports industry.
