Our artificial turf systems are the result of years of study at MONDO's research laboratories in collaboration with the Institute for Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV), the Laboratory of Ergonomics and Biomechanics of the University of Pavia and professional European football teams.
MONDO produces the complete system, from the fibres that constitute the turf, to the elastic underlayment, up to the granular thermoplastic rubber filler.
In addition to the production of the entire system, MONDO is able to install and maintain the entire system. The quick and easy installation of the Mondoturf systems responds to the needs of the most demanding sports for both men and women and guarantee exceptional durability following the recommended maintenance procedures.
The passage of time and wear can alter the properties of the artificial turf systems. A series of maintenance operations must be performed in order to maintain the initial technical conditions of the pitch.
Mondo has developed the new fiber 4NX.
A monofilament with exceptional characteristics both in dry as in wet conditions, characterized by great resistance, elastic return and maximum performance.
Hockey requires a playing field that offers a good biomechanical response both in player-surface interaction and ball-surface interaction. Since it is essential to obtain excellent ball roll, systems with high-density filaments and sand fillers are required for beginners and advanced hockey and with no sand filler for high performance hockey.
It is advisable to incorporate an elastic base layer under the artificial turf to provide good shock absorption and vertical deformation or stability. It is also very important to have a system that facilitates player traction, minimizing the risk of injury.
To guarantee sports function, a good artificial turf system will be resistant and highly durable over time due to UV protection. In addition, artificial turf with firm, upright blades will enhance rebound, ball roll and resistance.
Mondo recommends the use of high quality systems incorporating elastic base layers in high-performance facilities, turf filaments composed of polyethylene or polypropylene, with heights less than 20 mm, very high density tufts in 3/16" gauges and sand fillers, if required by the system.
