Synthetic turf fibers are sensitive to degradation when exposed to sunlight, as photo-degradation breaks down their polymer chains. ​

Ultimately this induces cracking, chalking, color changes and loss of physical properties. The fiber will eventually disintegrate itself. ​

​In order to counter this phenomenon, manufacturers add a combination of UV stabilizers to the polymer, following a precise formulation of their own.​

​The formulation makes the most use of synergies between families of stabilizers and therefore, a small deviation in the recipe can cause the stabilizers to be far less efficient than planned.​

​Labosport Sypac has therefore developed a Label to reward producers who have implemented quality control in their plants.
