Synthetic Turf Fibres


Synthetic turf fibres provide the look and feel of an artificial grass surface and are an important part of a sports system to help ensure it meets various performance characteristics. The quality of synthetic turf fibres is therefore essential for a quality surface. Technical details such as microns, dtex, shape, colour or polymer grade do not, by themselves, determine the overall quality of the synthetic turf fibres, but the ability to design optimal synthetic turf fibres in combination with advanced extrusion technology is what determines the quality of the yarns.

TenCate Grass has a balanced product portfolio of synthetic turf fibres specially developed for various sports and landscaping applications. TenCate Grass manufactures two types of synthetic turf fibres: monofilaments and fibrillated tape.

All TenCate Grass synthetic turf fibres contain high performance UV stabilisers and are free from heavy metals.


TenCate Monoslide® and TenCate Oasis® products are monofilament yarns. These synthetic turf fibres are extruded through a spinneret with the die hole of the spinneret determining the cross section shape of the yarn. The design of the turf fibre plays an important role in the performance characteristics of the synthetic turf surface.

Fibrillated Tape

TenCate Tapeslide® products are fibrillated tape yarns. Fibrillated tape products are produced by foil extrusion. The foil is slit into tape and the tape is fibrillated with a specific pattern. The fibrillation provides a natural look and feel after installation in a synthetic turf pitch.
