Nike Grind selected AstroTurf® as its exclusive partner to create cutting-edge turf systems. The brands share a common vision of delivering the most technologically advanced equipment for athletes. A full year of collaboration, research, and testing has been invested in bringing AstroTurf NRG system with Nike Grind to market.
Nike Grind is a palette of premium recycled materials used in a variety of settings, including synthetic turf infill. But it’s much more than construction material. It’s a way for architects, athletic facility managers and parks and recreation personnel to address both sustainability and surface performance at the same time.
Nike Grind infill is prepared for use in AstroTurf fields through a series of steps. First, excess rubber from the manufacturing of shoes is collected. This rubber is engineered for human contact and conforms to Nike’s stringent quality standards and Restricted Substances List (RSL). The rubber is chopped up and properly sized for field drainage and uniformity. Finally the infill is encapsulated with a premium green-colored coating that boosts resiliency and gives NRG fields the consistent and plush appearance clients expect.
The groundbreaking NRG system features an advanced turf profile. With a dense fiber matrix, an advanced RootZone® infill stabilization system, and Nike Grind infill, the NRG system is the next step in turf design.
