Artificial Surface Contamination Testing
2G Sand Surfaces Infill Contamination Testing
We provide a contamination testing service which shows exactly how much contamination exists in the sand infill. After lab testing, we provide a report on the contamination test results and give advice on how to improve the surface properties.
The samples on the right have been taken from 3 separate areas on an artificial sports pitch.
An average is then taken which gives us a percentage contamination, allowing us to decide on a course of treatment. This is a non-chargeable service to the client.
Limit contamination by frequent:
- clearing debris of synthetic surface (litter & leaf removal)
- dragmat brushing to de-compact the surface
- treatment of moss, algae and weeds
- deep clean power brushing to de-compact and clean out dirt and debris from the infill
If a synthetic sports surface is not well maintained, water percolation is inhibited due to dust and debris creating a sludgy impermeable layer on the playing surface. This in turn, creates an unsafe and slippery pitch or court.

Lack of porosity in the carpet, causing puddling after rainfall
