Artificial Grass Terminology

What is your question?

There are several ways of making artificial grass products, the most popular methods is “tufting” and most of our turf products are tufted. We also use “knitted” technology to make turf products and such method provide a fully permeated backing and hence named “flo-rite-through”. However, due to the high cost of such production and size limitations, we have not been actively prosecuting knitted products in recent years. All our our tufted turf products have great drainage capacities, on average, our artificial grass product can drain 50-100 inches per hour which can handle more than 5 times of the downpour from a category 5 hurricane. Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions, by phone/ 877 796 8873 or by email: [email protected], thank you.


Geotextile is an alternative name for artificial grass backings, it is more of general term referring to textile sheeting type which can be made of many different type of materials. In artificial turf industry, we tend to be more specific by simply naming the materials of such geotextile, foe an example namely polypropylene. Please let us know by phone (877 796 8873) or email ([email protected]) if you have any further questions, thank you.


Silica sands are measured by mesh sizes, the bigger the mesh number the smaller of the sands in diameters individually. By that said, the #60 mesh sands are finer than #30 by half of the particle size. We recommend to use different sized sands for different type of artificial grass applications. In general, #16-20 mesh sands to be used for most landscape turf products, either #30 or #60 mesh sands to be used for putting greens as the fibers on putting green products are very tight and the smaller the particles the easiler to be brushed in.

for a regularly used yard with Grown adults what would be best 20/30 infill or 30/65. I ordered 20/30 and got 30/65 from another company so It would be good to know if I should return or keep.

The main benefit of lower faceweight is the cost: the lower the faceweight, the less materials being used and the cost will be relatively lower. On the other hand, one of the key goals of manufacturing artificial grass is to make it as realistic as possible, by that said, it is not necessarily true that the heavier the faceweight, the better the product: the better product should be a perfect combination of decent faceweight and realistic.

Our shockpad for artificial grass application is made of combination of PE (Polypropylene) and POE (Polyolefin elastomers) through a forming process. So the product looks like “foam” with drainage cutouts and offer a great way to provide cushioning for turf. Our shockpad products come in with different roll sizes with a set width of 5’ at 10’, 25’ and 200’ length that suitable for various sized applications. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to have more information or samples, you can reach us by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] or this online form, thanks:


Polypropylene and Nylon resins are both raw materials can be used for making artificial grass. I wouldn’t make comments on the differences between these two materials themselves here, rather, I will briefly explain the differences of the artificial grass products made by Polypropylene and Nylon:

1. Products made of Polypropylene are bit softer and more flexible and less expensive in both raw materials cost and manufacturing cost. 

2. Products made of Nylon are more durable, and resist much higher heat with higher cost on both raw materials and manufacturing. Besides being hard/coarse which make it less acceptable to substitute real grass, another main advantage of Nylon turf is that the blades are porous which means colors and smells can be absorbed with no way to remove.

Woven backing artificial grass products were made by a manufacturing process name “knitted” which is a very old way of producing carpet or turf products with very low efficiency and production output. Almost all of our current turf products are “tufted” instead of “knitted” due to above reasons, and we have discontinued our knitted turf products (or woven backing products) about three years ago and they are not currently available, however, there still might be some old information on some reference pages of our website that hasn’t been taken down yet.

Does the face weight matter for a residential lawn or that spec geared more towards sports turf?


In my opinion, face weight of artificial grass products matters regardless the application. The face weight of an artificial grass product is one of the key specifications showing how much materials used: the higher the faceweight, the more of the materials and more dense and tends to be last longer which is a simple interpretation of law of physics. However, artificial grass should not be all amount faceweight, it should be a balance of faceweight, realistic look and feel and cost: we call such a balanced combination “value”. We guarantee that our artificial grass products offers the best value on the market, even products lower faceweight will last you a long time to meet the most stringent application requirements.
