Murfitts launches new PRO-gran infill for artificial pitches

PRO-gran is made from recycled rubber tyres

Murfitts, a UK-based manufacturer of artificial sports pitches, has developed PRO-gran, a new infill for artificial pitches that is designed to improve the lifespan of the pitch, as well as eliminate environmental and player health risks.

PRO-gran is a black rubber crumb artificial turf infill, made from rubber reclaimed from recycled tires, and coated in polyurethane. It is engineered to offer a superior playing experience, due to lower surface temperatures and effective drainage. It also has no aroma, no airborne particles and almost no splashing.

It is designed to last the lifetime of the pitch, with test results reportedly showing that there was almost no deterioration after 15,000 cycles - the equivalent of 10 - 12 years of use.

In addition, the infill has undergone rigorous testing to ensure it meets EU standards, and is to be 100 per cent safe for the environment as it doesn’t release heavy metals, PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) or microcarbons.

Mark Murfitt, founder and managing director, says: "We offer a product that not only eliminates any concern about player or public health, but also creates a more enjoyable playing experience."

Murfitt adds: "Since PRO-gran has been installed on its first two pitches, the feedback we’ve had from the clubs and installers has been incredibly positive."
