Hockey Players to Benefit From Synthetic Pitch Innovation

 Hockey Players to Benefit From Synthetic Pitch Innovation

TX HD™ the Latest in Artificial Turf Technology

Hockey players can now enjoy the latest innovation in the game’s sport-specific playing surfaces, with a new advancement in artificial turf technology.

TX HD™, the newest creation from synthetic yarn manufacturer, Bonar Yarns, is the next generation of ‘Knit de Knit’ (KdK) hockey fibre, incorporating specially curled yarns with a waxy surface that improve performance in both wet and dry conditions.

The yarn not only meets global standards, having achieved the FIH’s highest requirement, FIH Global Edition 2014, but it creates a consistent, uniform playing surface that lasts far longer than previous versions of KdK hockey products.

Key to TX HD™ is the increased durability it offers, ensuring that high wear areas can resist the additional strain, without detriment to the playing performance. Suitable for world class pitches, as well as all levels of clubs, universities and schools, the benefits of TX HD™ for players are numerous:

1.     TX HD™ yarn can be played on wet or dry, without affecting long term performance

2.     TX HD™ yarn ensures true ball roll, even over heavily used areas

3.     TX HD’s™ increases durability for longer pitch life

4.     TX HD™ is extremely soft, maximizing skin friendliness

5.     TX HD™ yarn is perfect for fully synthetic or sand dressed hockey systems

6.     TX HD™ yarn offers the perfect surface for fast hockey

Bryn Lee, Commercial Director at Bonar Yarns, said, “During the last few years KdK yarn has fallen from favour as the more durable texturised monofilament yarn became more popular. That is changing as the TX HD™ yarn is even more durable and offers a truer hockey surface far longer than any other yarn developed to date. KdK hockey pitches, always popular with players, are now back and thriving.”

TX HD™ yarn is the latest development specifically focussed on improving hockey systems. When used in dense constructions, pitches using TX HD ™ will play to FIH standards for longer than other fields, providing professional installation, the correct shock pad and adequate maintenance are all in place.
