In natural grass and synthetic turf surfaces, bacteria find their way onto the fibers. The bacteria reproduce and continue reproducing causing foul odors, discoloration, corrosion, and bio-fouling among other problems.
In order to create a grass surface
that is as safe and clean as possible, ForeverLawn has
teamed with AstroTurf manufacturing to add AlphaSan®
antimicrobial technology to our K9Grass,
and SportsGrass production.

AlphaSan® antimicrobial additive is a zirconium phosphate-based ceramic ion-exchange resin containing silver. Silver is well known as being safe for human contact and effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms. These antimicrobial properties bring additional value through product differentiation to a variety of synthetic turf applications.
On ForeverLawn synthetic surfaces
manufactured with AlphaSan® antimicrobial technology,
bacteria still find their way onto the fibers. However,
they will now come in contact with the AlphaSan®
silver ions. The silver ions successfully attack the
growth of microbial's metabolism inhibiting the growth
of this bacteria providing you with a safer, cleaner
The AlphaSan® technology is built in to the grass blades (yarn) during the production and is not a post-production application or spray that will wear off or fade away. Because of this innovative process, the ForeverLawn products will maintain their anti-microbial properties for the life of the product.
This new innovative technology is manufactured only by AstroTurf and is available exclusively in ForeverLawn’s K9Grass, Playground Grass, and SportsGrass products.
