Sprinturf’s parallel long slit fibrillated fibers are featured in the most fields in the nation over 10 years old. Sprinturf’s SharkTooth™ fiber slitting technology provides a longer lasting, better looking playing surface and we are the only turf manufacturer in the western hemisphere that makes this technology available. Exclusively made in- house and in America.
Sprinturf pioneered the Ultrablade parallel slit fiber system in 1998. Over 250 fields have been installed with Ultrablade since 2006 alone. The current Ultrablade slit fiber system features a proprietary Exxon metallacene resin. The 140 micron plus fiber provides unmatched durability. Tensile strengths average 40 percent higher than comparable Tencate XP fibers.
Ultrablade routinely passes 100,000 plus cycles on Lisport accelerated testing. Installations include University of Pennsylvania, Valdosta State University and Ball State University.
