Missouri Tigers Renovate Taylor with New Turf

Hawaii Upgrades with AstroTurf

Honolulu, HI – The Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium underwent major renovations this off season, and now they are complete. When the University of Hawaii takes the field this season they’ll be playing on state-of-the-art athletic turf from AstroTurf®. Home field advantage for the ‘Bows will include a stylized “H” logo embedded right in the centerfield turf.

Although the skinned infield remains clay, the outfield and foul territories will be covered in AstroTurf’s RootZone Diamond Blend synthetic turf system. This premium product is part of AstroTurf’s Diamond Series lineup of innovative baseball and softball turf. These systems are specifically engineered to emulate the look and feel of their natural surface counterparts. The new artificial grass at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium contains a proprietary blend of fibers including AstroTurf’s patented RootZone, a specialized sub-layer that encapsulates the infill and supports the other fibers. The RootZone Diamond Blend is designed to deliver consistent performance and durability, as well as accurate ball-bounce and footing.

“AstroTurf’s outstanding reputation in the softball and baseball world is well deserved,” said Head Coach Bob Coolen. “The new turf is exceptional and of course all of our girls are excited about the Hawaii logo in centerfield – it’s a nice touch. We’re eager to play on our new field at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium this spring.”  

Coach Coolen will be leading the Rainbow Wahine for his 27th season this year. He’s taken Hawaii to 11 NCAA Tournaments and two Super Regionals during his tenure, and just last year he racked up his 1,000th win at the helm of the program. The ‘Bows host Japan on their new field on February 11 for a pair of exhibition games before the official home opener February 28 against California to start the Malihini Kipa Aloha Tournament.

Denny Sadowski and his team at Co-Ha Builders installed the new AstroTurf softball turf. Other renovations to Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium included new fencing, upgraded spectator structures, and improvements to the dugouts.

AstroTurf Introduces BIONIC, the New WonderFiber

Dalton, GA – Over the decades, AstroTurf has prided itself on being the leaders of innovation in the synthetic turf industry, and in 2018 AstroTurf has done it again with the BIONIC Fiber, a new breakthrough in fiber technology. Throughout the history of the synthetic turf industry, the great quest of manufacturers has been to blend polyethylene (PE) and nylon into a single fiber. That dream has now become a reality!

From the industry’s earliest inception until the 1990s, nylon was used nearly across the board for its superior resilience and strength. The downside of all-nylon fibers was well known. It was abrasive. In the 1990s, polyethylene came into vogue and became the industry standard for tall pile face fibers. The PE fibers were much less abrasive, but they sacrificed the strength that previous generations of turf fields offered. But all of this in the past as AstroTurf has reinvented PE – making it better, stronger, BIONIC.

It is easy to see how blending two dissimilar polymers proved so difficult to accomplish for those in the industry. Chemically speaking, PE and nylon are like oil and water. They do not mix. It has to do with polarity. PE (like oil) is non-polar, while nylon (like water) is polar. That’s why efforts to mix the polymers into a single fiber have always failed – until now.

The breakthrough came through the use of proprietary compatibilizers. These compounds encase the nylon polymers, which are suspended within the PE to reinforce the fiber. These compatibilizers have an affinity with both the PE and the nylon. They are polar on the inside, and non-polar on the outside. In essence, the compatibilizers bridge the gap allowing for the creation of the Bionic co-polymer.

“We are tremendously proud to lead the way in new technological advancements that continue to shape the industry,” said AstroTurf President, Troy Squires.  “We believe this is a real game changer in terms of field performance and wear resistance.  After all, it’s all about performance.”

The Bionic fiber is already in use.  More than 700,000 square feet of the fiber have been installed at carefully selected beta sites around the country, with varying usage amounts and UV exposure.

The Bionic fiber has been extensively tested and it delivers a massive improvement in resistance to wear. Accelerated wear tests show that Bionic performs as well at 150,000 cycles as even AstroTurf’s own High Micron monofilament fibers at 100,000 cycles. Polyethylene fibers, regardless of how they are made, or how they may be combined, do not compare to the strength, resilience and durability of a molecularly fused Nylon and Polyethylene fiber.  That is why we confidently say… Better, Stronger, BIONIC.

Iconic St. John’s Baseball Stadium Converting to AstroTurf

                     The first rolls of turf being laid

Queens, NY – The Kings of Big East baseball are upgrading their home in Queens with a brand new field for The Jack. St. John’s University has decided to transform Jack Kaiser Stadium with cutting edge baseball turf from AstroTurf®. Installation is already underway with the new artificial field slated for completion before the Red Storm’s home opener in early March.

When the Johnnies take the field on March 6th, that field will be a fully synthetic surface comprised of AstroTurf’s Diamond Series baseball turf. All of the outfield and portions of the infield will be covered in the RootZone Diamond Blend artificial grass, while the base paths, batter’s box, warning track, and pitcher’s mound will feature the RootZone Diamond-i product. Decades of research and development, coupled with guidance from elite coaches and baseball lifers, have lifted the Diamond Series to the top of the market in college baseball turf. Each component of the field is specifically engineered to replicate the look, feel, and performance of a natural surface, including realistic ball bounce and accurate sliding distances. In other words, it plays like grass where it’s supposed to and like clay where it should.

I had been exploring the possibility of getting a turf field for many years.  I had been in contact with AstroTurf Regional Vice President Dave Wheaton, and after review and investigation, we came to the conclusion that AstroTurf is the best product on the market.  We are excited to partner with AstroTurf and look forward to seeing how this field helps our program develop” said Ed Blankmeyer, St. John’s Head Coach.

After doing their homework, St. John’s knew they wanted AstroTurf for their conversion to artificial turf. Their procurement of the brand new field was made possible by AstroTurf’s association with National IPA. National IPA is the nation’s leading cooperative purchasing organization. They offer a portfolio of competitively solicited contracts that have been awarded based on industry best practices and maximum value. It saves institutions like St. John’s University time and money by eliminating the administrative costs and hassles of running competitive solicitations on their own.

Coach Blankmeyer returns to lead a Red Storm squad that is coming off of one of the school’s best seasons in history. The Johnnies won 42 games and made the NCAA Tournament for the 10th time under Blankmeyer. After traveling to North Carolina and California for early season tournaments, the Johnnies return to Queens for their home opener March 6th against LIU-Brooklyn, where they will show off their new AstroTurf field at The Jack.
