Limonta Sport obtains certification for 100% natural infill
Limonta Sport obtained the OK BIOBASE and OK BIODEGRADABLE certification from the TÜV Austria Institute for their GEO, a 100% natural performance infill. Andrea Marcassoli, R&D Manager explains : “A certification based on European standards EN13432 and EN14995 relating to compostability confirms that GEO is 100% biodegradable in the soil, and EN16640 on which the tests were based, gives GEO the 4-star BIOBASED label, which is the maximum rating, as it is made up of 100% renewable raw materials. ”
Revolutionary and cutting edge, GEO consists exclusively of a mixture of organic plant material, derived from defibration of woody plants, that have been carefully chosen and processed with an innovative process. The result is a 100% natural and biodegradable infill because it is free from foreign materials, which ensures maximum performance and unparalleled athlete safety. The organic material used is essential for playability as it gives the pitch biomechanical features that allow players to make fluid and natural changes in direction. Geo adds to the technical advantages provided by Limonta Sport’s artificial turf, the comfort of natural grass, making it an ideal product for a pitch that maintains excellent performance, safety and endurance parameters over time so the athletes can focus on the game without adjusting their style.
That’s the reason why, since its introduction on the market in 2000, with over 500 installations, GEO has been selected by clubs like AC Milan, FC Internazionale, Athletic Bilbao, Spartak Moscow, Rubin Kazan, Astana Arena, Galatasaray and Worcester Warriors.
