DOMO Naturafill

DOMO® NATURAFILL

Naturafill is an environmentally friendly artificial grass infill material. A natural product based on specially selected cork. Pure nature, with no additives. The cultivation and processing of the cork is also carried out in perfect harmony with nature from start to finish.

Artificial grass uses infill materials to guarantee the perfect shock-absorbing characteristics of the grass mat. At present these are mostly vulcanised materials such as rubber. With Naturafill, Domo is taking the next step in its innovative eco-policy.

Naturafill is a 100% organic artificial grass infill material. Pure nature. The cultivation and processing of the cork is also carried out in perfect harmony with nature from start to finish. Naturafill is composed of 100% high-performance cork, without additives.

Naturafill is produced on cork plantations, where it is harvested from cork oaks at nine-year intervals. An oak’s cork is harvested for the first time once the tree is approximately 25 years old. The professional extraction of the cork bark from the trunk has no negative impact on the continued survival of the tree. It is estimated that cork oak groves worldwide absorb 10 million metric tonnes of CO2 per year. This has a positive impact on the safeguarding of our climate. Cork is also a renewable resource, and what’s more, cork oaks are managed sustainably: when an old tree (200 years old) is cut down, a young tree is planted in its place. Because production takes place primarily in Europe, and because the materials weigh so little, the environmental impact of transporting them is also relatively low.
