The figure displays a schematic of a third generation (3G) artificial turf surface used for sporting applications. The surface is constructed in a layered format consisting of (bottom to top): an elastomeric shockpad to enhance the surface shock absorption properties; a carpet layer consisting of polymer fibres stitched into a geotextile carpet backing to prevent migration of infill and act as an interface for ball interactions; a layer of sand infill to help support the fibres in an upright position; a performance infill layer consisting of rubber granules to provide an interface for player and ball interactions.
