New tech bulletin on synthetic turf pre-fabrication

Synthetic Surfaces Inc. has a new Tech Bulletin #557A on Pre-Fabrication of Synthetic Turf Recreational Surfaces, Athletic Fields, Logos, Inserts and Floor Mats. It addresses a growing trend in the synthetic turf industry towards pre-fabricating all or part of a synthetic turf assembly by bonding its components together with an adhesive before transferring it to another location for final installation. The most commonly used adhesives for pre-fabrications are one-component, solvent-based, high green strength curing urethanes.  The goal of pre-fabricating is to increase bottom-line profits by fast, reliable, economical assembly before-hand, followed later by faster and better installation. Also, pre-fabrication can reduce or eliminate unexpected delays and other labor-related expenses at the installation jobsite.
