Myths and Facts about Artificial Grass Fibers

Myth:
All artificial grass monofilament fibers are manufactured the same way.
Fact:
There are two types of monofilament fibers on the market for artificial grass – “flat tape” monofilament fibers and “true” monofilament fibers. Flat tape monofilament fibers are not as durable as the real thing. The arched profile of the monofilament fiber is based on similar structures found in nature. Extruded through a spinnerette, it is a “true” monofilament fiber that delivers unmatched durability, especially resistance to wear. Tests indicate that although this fiber is far more durable, the artificial grass remains silky and lush, just like nature intended natural grass to look. A durable “spine” runs vertically through the center of each fiber providing unmatched “memory” and resistance to matting.¬†Purchase Green offers a variety of different high-performance, exclusive, long-lasting yarns with patented designs that are suited for every application of artificial grass. You can count on Purchase Green for the best artificial grass fiber on the market.

Myth:
Nylon systems are better than the polyethylene fiber systems carried by Purchase Green.
Fact:
Nylon is an old artificial grass technology that has the same fiber found in indoor/outdoor carpeting and the artificial grass of decades ago. It does have specific uses, but for the most part it has been replaced in every major arena, stadium, sports field, and by most commercial and residential artificial grass consumers throughout America.  Unlike Purchase Green polyethylene artificial grass, this older nylon technology feels abrasive, crunches under the feet, fades quickly over time, and absorbs liquid. Safety, performance, durability, and aesthetics are all greatly improved by our Purchase Green polyethylene fibers and various infills.
