Fytofoam really comes into it’s own when applied under or injected into sports turf. From football to golf to rugby and cricket pitches, any sports turf project will benefit from the application of Fytofoam.

What is Fytofoam?

Fytofoam is an aminoplast resin which is produced with a hardener under pressure. This results in a light but very spongy substance, with a dry matter content varying form 22 to 30kg/m3 and a water absorption of 60%. Further important features of the resin are that is is absolutely harmless to the environment and entirely biodegradable. This makes Fytofaom highly suitable for improving the soil structure where sports turf is to be installed or renovated.

Fytofoam can be applied on site by means of a specially developed mobile foaming machine. The product is also available in flakes, supplied in big bags. Both foam and flakes can be mixed into the upper layer of the soil.

Fytofoam is available in several densities the main one, RG22 (22kg/m3) being recommended for sports turf applications.

The Advantages

Fytofoam’s great water-holding ability and air permeability ensure a gradual release of the nutrients and the water absorbed.
