RESILIENCY • 40% more dense than traditional infill
Type of system
High density reduces granule migration providing a more uniform and stable field. It improves athletic performance and reduces injuries.

SBR & sand
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
