Futrfill TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) is a completely recyclable, reusable, non-flammable infill product and is 100% North American made – it’s the right infill choice for the artificial turf systems of tomorrow.

Our Futrfill TPE is derived from an environmentally inert material that is not only color-fast and UV resistant but heavy metal free so doesn’t leach toxic chemicals into the environment. It resists agglomeration up to 203° F (95º C) unlike alternate products available outside North America which have been known to melt in the turf.

The polymer utilized as a feedstock for Futrfill, is the same base polymer used in many food and milk container applications – Futrfill is a revolutionary infill product developed with physical safety, environmental safety, and longevity in mind.

The New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) approved Target FutrFill TPE as an accepted component of their complete artificial turf system. The Fairfax County Park Authority of Great Falls, VA chose Target Futrfill for Nike Field as a vital component of their ongoing storm water management system in the area. Commenting on these achievements is Target Technologies managing director, John B. Giraud, “By carefully examining sustainable alternative infills, state governments are proving to be innovative leaders in synthetic turf construction. They recognize that the proper physical and intellectual development of our young athletes of tomorrow, is greatly dependent upon the provision of safe and secure playing facilities. TTII is pleased to offer FutrFill as an integral part of this success.”

Forward-thinking state governments, municipalities, school boards and colleges are including end-of-field-life considerations as part of their bidding process. As land filling of old, worn out artificial fields becoming less practical and popular – Target FutrFill can be sold to the plastics industry for recycling.
