Hazard identification of artificial turf layer mainly identifies toxic and harmful chemical pollutants in turf layer. Usually man-made lawn layer contains chemical fiber materials, and chemical fiber materials often contain a large number of health-affecting chemicals. For some lawn manufacturers, in order to change the performance of chemical fibers, additives will be added to raw materials, so that artificial lawn has more new functions. Of course, adding additives in artificial lawn raw materials will change the performance of artificial lawn, and the improper use of inferior additives will cause secondary hazards of artificial lawn. Artificial turf additives include fillers, curing agents, plasticizers, stabilizers, flame retardants and colorants. Additives have a great influence on the quality of artificial grassland.
Most of the artificial lawn layers with fillers have no environmental hazards. Most of the fillers have reinforcing effect and change the performance of plastic lawn. The filling agent accounts for about 40%-70% of the materials. The commonly used filling agents are graphite and mica. Of course, the use of fiber fillers can improve the structural strength of materials, such as mica fillers can enhance the electrical insulation of raw materials. Graphite can improve the wear resistance of raw materials. Curing agent should be added to the inferior artificial turf layer to form a network structure and make it a more rigid and stable rubber product. However, different turf layer resins need different curing agents, such as hexamethylenetetramine, because of the addition of different curing agents, such as phenolic resin.
The above two additives are harmful to the environment and human body respectively. Hexamethylenetetramine can cause dermatitis and eczema in human body. So please stop using this kind of unqualified artificial lawn products immediately when the human body has discomfort symptoms. Please go to the local hospital for examination and treatment immediately.
