FieldTurf Classic HD

Classic HD is the newest slit-film fiber from FieldTurf. It was carefully crafted to maximize durability and safety, as well as being aesthetically pleasing. As we say, it's a Beauty and a Beast. 

It was designed using the PPG philosophy – Polymer, Process, and Geometry, to create the new industry standard in slit-film yarn.

Overview Technical Data References


FieldTurf Classic HD has been designed to consistently outperform competing slit-film yarns in the industry. Complete with a very strong polymer and the proper concentration of UV stabilizers, the thick design and precision cut pattern of the HD yarn reduces infill splash.

FieldTurf’s Classic HD slit-film artificial turf fiber combines the durability of slit-film yarns with an upgraded production process to deliver the perfect combination of durability and softness. Its unique extrusion and inline precision cutter eliminates excess splitting, for longer-lasting performance and softness. It virtually eliminates any “Edge Decay” that exists on other artificial turf fibers.

The fibrillation process of the Classic HD fibers splits the open end at the top of each fiber. The fibers then lay over on the surface and encapsulate the infill.

Coupled with FieldTurf’s patented, 3-layer, heavy infill system and state-of-the-art SureLock coating method, the FieldTurf Classic HD turf system has been designed to be the leading slit-film synthetic turf system in the industry with unparalleled player safety and turf drainage rates.

  • Designed for extreme durability with a high-end polymer and UV stabilizers along with a unique fiber shape and cut pattern.
  • Much softer to the touch and less abrasive in comparative tests than competing slit-film yarns - without sacrificing any characteristics related to durability.
  • FieldTurf Classic HD system features patented heavy three-layer infill with proven long-term safety characteristics.
  • Patented SureLock coating system leaves the backing 40% porous for unmatched drainage.
