How do you manufacture artificial grass?

Manufacturing artificial grass involves several steps, including materials preparation, tufting, coating, and finishing. Here’s a general overview of the manufacturing process:

  1. Raw Material Preparation:
  • Yarn Production: arn Production: The base material for artificial grass is typically polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP).Raw materials include new materials and recycled materials. All the artificial grass produced by Mango Sports uses new materials.The yarns are produced in long rolls and are sometimes textured to resemble natural grass.
  • Backing Material: The backing material is typically made from polypropylene or latex.with some customers also specifying PU and 100% recycled backing. It provides stability and support to the artificial grass.
  1. Tufting:
  • The yarn is fed through a tufting machine, which needles it through the backing material. The tufting process creates loops that form the grass blades. The spacing and density of the tufts determine the appearance and performance of the artificial grass.
  1. Coating:
  • The tufted material is then coated with a layer of latex to secure the yarns in place. The latex is often mixed with other materials to enhance adhesion and durability.
  1. Secondary Backing:
  • A secondary backing material (often another layer of latex) is applied to the coated side of the artificial grass. This reinforces the structure and provides additional stability.
  1. Drying:
  • The newly tufted and coated artificial grass is passed through an oven or drying chamber to cure the latex and ensure proper adhesion. This step is crucial for the stability and durability of the final product.

  1. Cutting and Roll Formation:

The artificial grass produced is cut into rolls or specific sizes according to customer requirements. The roll width can be based on customer needs, such as 1 meter, 2 meters, 4 meters, 4.75 meters, 5 meters. The rolls are then typically rolled onto a core for packaging and shipping.

  1. Quality Control:
  • Quality control measures are implemented throughout the entire manufacturing process. This includes checking artificial grass thickness, density, color consistency, roll width, roll length and overall quality.
  1. Optional Features:
  • Some artificial grass may undergo additional processes to add features such as UV resistance, fire resistance, antimicrobial properties, or specific color variations.
  1. Packaging and Shipping:
  • The final artificial grass rolls are packed and ready for shipping. Mango Sports may provide specific instructions for unfolding and installing artificial grass, as well as an artificial grass product quality warranty..
  1. Installation:
  • Once the artificial grass reaches its destination, it can be installed on various surfaces, including soil, concrete, or specialized sub-bases, depending on the application.

It’s important to note that different artificial grass manufacturers’ processes may vary, while advances in technology continue to improve the quality and sustainability of artificial grass products. The quality of the raw materials used and the manufacturing process significantly affect the final performance and appearance of artificial grass.
