MONDOTURF FTS3 SYSTEM

The synergy, provided by the three elements which comprise the Mondoturf FTS3 System, grants exceptional biomechanical conditions on the field for playing or practicing sports, and provides the maximum confidence at an ecological level. In addition, excellent shock absorption— vertical deformation and energy return is achieved based upon the biomechanics. Surface interaction is optimum for spike penetration and traction. Ball bounce and rolling effects are similar to those of the best natural grass. Mondoturf FTS3 is the only turf system in the world that reaches and surpasses the benchmarks set by the best natural grass fields, considering biomechanics, performance and durability.

4NX MONOFILAMENT FIBERS 400 micron thickness is unique within the industry. This insures improved elastic memory, durability and tear resistance. 4NX offers a new two-tone color that enhances the fiber to a more “natural” appearance.

GREEN FACTS • Product is in compliance: SEMI-VOLATILE ORGANICS TESTS

Ecofill Rebound is in conformity with the related requirements of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and to the 16 PAH according to EPA. • Why it’s important: According to the new REACH regulation update (from 25/12/2015), people should not come into direct skin contact with products/components that contain more than 1 mg/kg of one of the 8 Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS) listed (0,5 mg for toys and childcare articles). • European Toys Safety Directive, Greenguard: HEAVY METALS TESTS Ecofill Rebound is in conformity to the EN 71-3-Category III • Why it’s important: Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, European Standard EN 71-3, Migration of certain elements, sets exacting limits for various elements including heavy metals in children’s toys. Used to establish compliance with European Union safety standards for toys from July 2013, the accessible parts of toys must no longer contain certain heavy metals such as lead, or chemicals that could provoke cancer, change genetic information or harm reproduction (known as CMR substances). PERFORMANCE / SAFETY CHARACTERISTICS • Controlled resiliency on the entire play surface This ensures extraordinary ball behavior and good playability, shock absorption, energy return and reduces the risk of injury. • 70% lower energy return than traditional infill materials Excessive energy return typical of traditional infill systems may exert additional stress to the athlete’s muscles and joints and may lead to premature fatigue.

THERMAL COMPARISON The following table shows thermal images and their statistical data taken on two adjacent fields, one infilled with Ecofill ® and the other with SBR. Both images were taken the same day, with the same meteorological conditions and sunlight angle. Areas B and D are natural grass. LESS RADIANT HEAT EFFECT • Compared to Ecofill ® , traditional black rubber granules will increase the temperature that radiates from the field by 79.8%. The extra heat that radiates from fields with traditional black rubber granules increases fatigue and discomfort reducing the athletic performance. It can increase the risk of dehydration, may cause blisters and, in extreme conditions, may even cause skin burns. • 80% lower frequency vibrations versus traditional infill Recent studies confirmed that there is a direct relationship between the vibration level on the body and the risk of injury; moreover the vibration level influences the comfort level and athletes’ steadiness on the turf.

“I was promised that the field would be considerably cooler than those we had played on at other schools. The first time we used it, the temperature was 110 degrees. We walked across the blacktop, which was unbelievably hot, but as soon as we hit the field, it was like a respite. Our players came in and laid down on the field, right in the middle of a summer afternoon practice. Mondo promised that the field would be cooler, and it definitely was.” Ed Lombardi, Football Coach, Elk Grove

LOYOLA ACADEMY • IL

“I’ve played on a lot of different surfaces in my career and I can’t think of another synthetic surface that compares to the Mondo Ecofill ® system - it’s like playing on natural grass without the worry of slipping. I’m really impressed with how well this has turned out for Loyola Academy, and how beneficial it is going to be for our program.” John Holecek Head Football Coach - Former NFL player Loyola Academy

WEST LIBERTY UNIVERSITY • WV

“Mondoturf played a key role in our success. The number and seriousness of turf-related injuries has been significantly reduced, and our student- athletes’ muscles recover much more quickly than when they played on other surfaces. We also have better practices early in the week because our athletes’ legs stay fresher even after a full week of practice and a weekend game. In addition, since we installed Mondoturf, our recruiting has improved. The overall beauty of the turf attracts a lot of attention from our prospects - much more than the natural grass surface we previously had.” Roger Waialae

Head Football Coach West Liberty University

OUR FIELDS STAND THE TEST OF TIME

INSTALLED IN 2010

JOLIET MEMORIAL STADIUM • IL

“The Mondotrack and a Mondoturf field will enhance the stadium’s reputation as a world-class community facility. The park district was seeking to replace the venue’s natural grass field with a surface that could withstand heavy, year-round use. In addition, the previous field’s drainage system was worn out and district officials wanted a field that could drain quickly so it could easily be used by multiple teams and for multiple sports. In the past, we could never let soccer or lacrosse teams play because it would beat up the field, and we had to keep it ready for football. We have chosen a durable surface that would not only survive Joliet football season, but would also allow other sports to be played on it. Because of the Mondo surfaces, the opportunity to host different sports and events has grown tremendously.” Tom Carstens

Executive Director Joliet Park District

NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY “Mondoturf’s superior resilience will enable our men’s and women’s soccer teams to use the new field both for practice sessions and intercollegiate matches. The grass field we’re replacing required several days to recover after practice sessions before they were ready for game day. Thanks to Mondoturf’s outstanding drainage, the teams also will be able to use the field within a few hours after even a major rainfall. Regular grass surfaces require repair time and time to dry out after a downpour.” Jeff Daurer, Director, Capital Budget and Campus Planning
