Silica Sand Infill - 20/30 - 50Lb Bag (#11650)
NOTE: As a final top coating, the infill is the last product needed to complete a successful artificial turf installation. The application that the turf will be used in will determine the type of infill required for the project.
Infills are needed for many reasons, however, they can also provide different solutions. Each of them creates a different type of system that can vary from an "odor control pet system" (to avoid stinky situations in the short and long term) to a "temperature control system" (that cools down the turf surface up to 50 degrees to make it more comfortable for the everyday use).
Silica Sand infill for artificial grass helps weigh down the turf and keeps the artificial grass from getting wrinkles or ripples caused by movement and climate change. It also helps the grass blades stand up and keep its "real" look, even in high traffic areas. Finally, it creates a layer that absorbs the traffic providing durability for the turf. Infill is absolutely necessary in order to complete an artificial grass project successfully.
Our silica sand is guaranteed to be non-angular which essentially means that it is rounded and has no sharp edges. This is very important because angular silica sand has shark edges and will act like sandpaper and will grind the turf to dust.
Our silica sand is washed so only the sand crystals stay while all of the finer dust particles get washed away. This is very important because if the sand is not washed then those fine dust particles eventually accumulate and clog the drainage holes.
Silica Sand is washed with water so after it is washed it is soaking wet which is a problem because it will lump up and not slide into the turf blades easily. Wet sand prior to installation will NOT allow for a successful and professional finish. This is why our sand infill goes through an additional step and gets dried in an oven so we can guarantee that every single bag of sand is 100% dry!
