GrassTex is a world leader in manufacturing synthetic turf for residential and commercial applications. When it first opened its doors in 1976, GrassTex established itself as a pioneer in the creation of safe, durable turf technology. This innovative drive led to new advances in synthetic turf – it became safer, stronger and more natural in appearance. Developments like the Dow urethane backing, created for carpet in the mid-80’s, increased synthetic turf’s strength and durability. As synthetic turf technologies evolved, GrassTex adapted to meet commercial and consumer demand.
When the popularity of indoor soccer exploded in the mid 80’s, GrassTex helped to invent the urethane backing which made the tough artificial turf of these fields possible. Huge strides were made to improve the overall quality and convertibility of artificial turf options. During this period of industry evolution, GrassTex was leading the way, pushing the creation of new technologies and constantly generating more advanced products. Soccer arenas, football fields, and putting greens were just a few of the major sports to benefit from the advances made by tougher, safer, more versatile turf.
GrassTex continues to offer the Hi-Tech turf system. The system now also incorporates cutting edge polyethylene fibrillated fibers for playability along with a texturized nylon thatch for performance combined with a new Polyurethane backing in its new Arena Turf designs. The Polyurethane backing called Silverback™, is the newest and most advanced available. Now golf, football, baseball and landscape turf can benefit from the increased durability of our Hi-Tech Silverback backing system.
