Standard Test Methods for Comprehensive Characterization of Synthetic Turf Playing Surfaces and Materials
|Publication Date:||1 July 2009|
|ICS Code (Sports facilities):||97.220.10|
These test methods establish a recommended list from which suitable test methods shall be selected for the identification of physical property characteristics and comparison of the performance properties of synthetic turf systems or components for athletic and recreational uses, or both.
Some of the test procedures are suitable only for the laboratory characterization of either components or the complete system; others are suitable for tests on installed sports fields; and some tests may be applied in both the laboratory and the field.
The test procedures included in these test methods apply as a group to the description of synthetic turf playing surfaces.
Some of the test procedures are specific for components of the synthetic turf system, and others apply to the complete synthetic turf playing surface.
Reference to the methods for testing the synthetic turf playing surface and its components contained herein should state specifically the particular test or tests desired and not necessarily refer to these test methods as a whole.
This is a physical property characterization standard, and it shall not be construed as a safety standard.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
