PFAS-free synthetic turf

Synthetic Turf Made In USA

Sport Group is committed to enhancing the quality, sustainability, and safety of all its products. We continually develop new and improved technologies, ingredients, and manufacturing processes.

Since 2019 we have been working intensively on finding alternatives, and have steadily removed the fluor chemistry from our global production plants – STR in USA, APT in Australia and Polytex in Germany.

We achieved this by removing a fluorinated polymer from the turf manufacturing process and applying a new generation of polymer process aids that are free from fluorinated chemistry.

This proactive innovation went beyond the regulations at the time and ensures that we are now leading the industry in PFAS elimination.

Regulation compliance in California

Sport Group is globally compliant with all current legal regulations. This includes for example REACH in the EU.

At present, California has the most stringent regulations, with California Health and Safety Code 108945. In 2023 products manufactured at STR in Dalton, GA were tested by independent laboratories and comply with this Californian standard, which defines a threshold of PFAS using a total organic fluorine screening method specifically for children’s products. Meeting this standard determines the threshold of what is considered as ‘PFAS-free’. We will continue to independently test our products each year, as part of our internal auditing processes.

Sport Group places the highest priority on the health and safety of its customers, its employees, and the environment. We are transforming our products with green technology, and have an independent ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) rating that places the company in the top 7% of over 15,000 companies globally.
