• Do you have a SYNTHETIC TURF FIELD? Did you TEST YOUR INFILL?

    95% OF SYNTHETIC TURF FIELDS contain rubber infill, to provide ELASTICITY and PERFORMANCE to the game

  • Rubber infill can come from two sources

    ● Recycled materials (such as recycled tyres)
    ● Specially manufactured polymers (such as EPDM, TPE…)
    The untrained eye cannot recognise one from the other

Why should you test your infill?

As of today, all major studies have concluded that, by a very large majority, infill products sold on the market do not present any known health risks.

However, on rare instances, materials from questionable origins happened to be an issue.

Laboratory tests can ensure that the infill you are playing on comes from a trustable source.


IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PLAYING ON

ANALYZE your INFILL within 3 WEEKS

A chemical analysis will allow to identify the material’s nature, its origin and will raise a flag in case its chemical composition is considered to be unusual by our experts.

WHO CAN DO THIS FOR ME ?

Any laboratory equipped with Gas Chromatography and ICP can perform those analyses.

Labosport is an independent ISO-17025 laboratory dedicated to sport surfaces, we have been testing infill materials since 2005.

We can therefore compare your infill with hundreds of others and precisely interpret your test results.

LABOSPORT INFILL TESTING PACKAGE is valid for all types of synthetic turf fields (existing, new, renovation)

MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION AND ORIGIN
  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons according to US EPA 8270
  • Further identification test if necessary

This will tell you about your infill origin. It will help our experts determine if its chemical composition reveals anything out of range.

CHEMICAL TESTING
  • ASTM F3188 – Standard Specification for Extractable Hazardous Metals in Synthetic Turf Infill Materials

This will tell you if your infill is compliant with current standards and regulations.

8 YEAR ARCHIVE
  • 8 year-storage in our laboratory

This allows for future analysis on your infill (ex: in case of standard evolution).
