NY Dept of Health- 08/2008
Publishes FACT Sheet on Synthetic Turf Fields

FACT SHEET – Crumb-Rubber Infilled Synthetic Turf Athletic Fields
August 2008

PURPOSE of the NY Dept of Health report:

There are several kinds of synthetic turf surfaces (e.g., surfaces that use a fill material (“infill”) between the blades of artificial grass and those that do not), and synthetic turf may be installed for different uses (e.g., single or multiple sport athletic fields, landscaping, golf applications).

The focus of this fact sheet is athletic fields with crumb rubber infilled synthetic turf. This fact sheet was developed to assist people in making decisions about installing or using this kind of synthetic turf athletic field. Considerations related to other kinds of synthetic turf fields are not addressed in this fact sheet.
