The Manufacturing Process of Artificial Turf in Florida

how artificial turf in florida is made

Step One:

First, plastic pellets are combined with dyes and chemical to give the turf its green color and to protect it from the U.V. rays from the sun.

 

Step Two:

After the plastic pellets, dyes, and chemicals are blended, it is then mixed by a machine until it has a thick and taffy-like consistency.

 

Step Three:

The thick liquid is fed into an extruder, exits as a long and thin material, and is spun into yarn.

 

Step Four:

Next, the yarn is worked and twisted through a series of motions until it resembles natural grass.

 

Step Five:

The synthetic yarn then travels through a tubing and tufting machine. The tufting machine acts as a giant sewing machines and contains over 200 needles to hook the yarn through synthetic sheeting. The yarn is now a carpet of artificial turf.

 

Step Six:

The artificial turf goes through a series of processes to ensure that it is coated with latex, that the latex is cured, and that all of the blades are even.

 

Step Seven:

Finally, the turf is packed, shipped, and installed by a professional installer of artificial turf in Florida.
