The future of rubber in sports- and recreational-flooring
Thomas Kubitza; Melos
Artificial Turf: The quality of artificial turf pitches for sport depends largely on the type of infill granules used. In particular, the basic material and processing method are crucial factors in determining how artificial turf systems perform in terms of playing conditions, environmental compatibility, impact on health and costs alike. In developing its new Hybrid Infill, Melos has succeeded in combining natural and synthetic materials for the very first time. Playing performance is not the only aspect to benefit.
Playgrounds: Melos is currently developing a new business area, expanding into the field of additive manufacturing processes and 3D Printing. This will complement the company’s traditional expertise in rubber and compounding. The first printing solution is already available: The StyleMaker.
