Paradise Greens Backing System

by | Feb 4, 2011 | Why Go With Artificial Turf

The driving ambition of Paradise Greens and Turf Company is to develop a synthetic turf product that is not only durable and aesthetically pleasing, but as environmentally friendly as possible.  This mission begins with a close examination of every component that makes up our quality artificial turf and the goal of providing the highest quality products.  Today Paradise Greens offers the most environmentally friendly artificial turf available on the market today.

Quality Artificial Turf Backing

As it happens, Quality artificial turf backing is made of a combination of permeable woven and non-woven polypropylene fabrics. Hence, the fibers are tufted (stitched) into the backing material in rows according to a specific gauge spacing.  Artificial turf products come in a variety of backings: polyurethane, latex, BioCel, and Duraflo. All of Paradise Greens products offer BioCel technology.  Honestly, our quality artificial turf backing replaces over 90% of the petroleum based polymers used in polyurethane secondary backings with bio-based polymers derived from domestically grown soybeans.  Consequently, BioCel is consistent with Paradise Greens’ objective to continue to offer cutting edge, eco friendly products.

  • BioCel uses renewable resource.  Every yard of BioCel we install contributes to improved air quality through the reduction of CO2.
  • BioCel backing incorporates post-consumer recycled PET plastic from soft drink and water bottles.

Finally, Paradise Greens chose to use BioCel instead of Duraflo. Why? Because BioCel resists expansion and contraction under extreme temperature fluctuations. Furthermore, it does not harbor odor causing bacteria. And finally, it drains at an astounding 42 gallons per hour.

How Biocel is Made

BioCel uses a combination of bio-based polymers and Celceram. These Bio polymers use a portion of the polyoil found in soybean plants.  Celceram stabilizes and toughens the polyurethane compound.  BioCel does not impact the performance of the secondary backing, but rather delivers the same level of performance in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Charlie Ferer, President & CEO of Paradise Greens, comments, “BioCel backing is ideal. The product does not promote growth of bacteria or viruses in artificial turf. Ultimately, this contributes to LEED points. More specifically, it meets the requirement for rapidly renewable materials. This is in the Materials and Resources Section of LEED guidelines.  Paradise Greens quality artificial turf is the most “green” product on the market today. Yet, it does not sacrifice aesthetics, durability or feel.  In addition, it gives home owners a sense of pride. They are installing a great looking, eco-friendly product.”
