Poligras AquaTurf Evolution
Our leading watered hockey system is a great choice for State Hockey Centres and Regional facilities.
Poligras AquaTurf Evolution
Aquaturf® Evolution, is a leading watered synthetic turf hockey surface developed to suit State Hockey centres and regional locations. This system has been installed at State Centre levels and hosted international standard matches. Poligras AquaTurf® Evolution meets all the requirements of FIH approval for unfilled hockey surfacing system.
Exhibiting outstanding UV stability and playability from the exclusive fibrillated yarn, allowing for fast-moving styles of play with precise ball characteristics – and to top it off, it is Australian made!
Evolving from the successful Aquaturf® SL (sand dressed) synthetic hockey surface, Aquaturf® Evolution is designed using a polyethylene fibrillated KDK yarn, manufactured in-house, with unique polymer formulation and fibrillation pattern to improve playability and increase durability whilst offering improved ball roll, reduced friction and turf abrasion resistance.

Certified & Preferred
The high quality and excellent playing properties of our synthetic turfs have also been verified by numerous seals of quality and certificates. Our synthetic turf systems meet the current national and/or international standards and can be tested and certified according to FIH requirements (International Hockey Federation).
All our synthetic surfaces comply with the current national and international standards, including all environmental requirements. The consistent high quality of our surfaces is ensured 100% by final inspection and testing according to our ISO 9001 certification. Our hockey fields can be tested and certified according to FIH requirements (International Hockey Federation).
Poligras® is the exclusive FIH preferred pitch supplier.
Force reduction evaluates a surface's ability to reduce impact force. This mostly relates to impacts generated by lower extremities, for example an athlete running. Our sport surfaces offer greatly reduces tissue damage, joint impact and sports related injuries and player fatigue.
With a high force reduction your sports surface will also provide you with a high energy return, this helps players play long and reduces recover times.
Elastic Layer Shockpad
The shock absorption layer of the Poligras® system is installed on site and consists of recycled SBR granules and bonding agents to ensure that the Poligras® synthetic surface is both stable and yielding to protect the athletes. Factors that are key in sports physiology, such as shock absorption and deformation, are permanently kept within a precisely defined value range thanks to the special APT formulation.
Track surfaces, in general fall into two categories: permeable (or porous) meaning water drains through the surface, and impermeable (or non-porous), meaning water drains and/or evaporates off the surface. The surface for you will depend on your geographical site location, weather conditions and other factors.
QUALIBACK HYBRID EMULSION: Extensive research and development led to the highly successful 'Hybrid Emulsion' secondary backing coating to replace outdated technology. The upgrade of this critical system component is based on our chemical manufacturing excellence for formulating acrylic and polyurethane coatings. In-house manufacture and application of the revolutionary 'Hybrid Emulsion' secondary backing for artificial turf is a substantial improvement from conventional and outdated SBR latex.
Full Adhesion with Qualipur Seaming Adhesive
QUALIPUR SEAMING ADHESIVE: In-house manufacture of this polyurethane seaming adhesive creates unmatched seam strength. This increases the durability and longevity of seams which means fields have a much longer overall life expectancy. This strength also supports the athletes as there is no cause for lifting of the seams endangering player safety.
Exclusive Adhesion with Qualipur Spray Adhesive
QUALIPUR SPRAY ADHESIVE: In-house manufacture of this exclusive adhesive offers 100% adhesion of the entire pitch surface. This revolutionary adhesive application provides superior dimensional stability over ‘loose laying’ techniques for unfilled hockey surfaces. Reducing playing surface, delamination and frequent ‘stick-tears’ in high wear areas on aged unfilled turfs is the secret to longevity and minimising loss of water from the system once irrigated.
Our full range contains recycled rubber which has been washed and prepared for use.
Heavy Metal Free
Our full range is heavy metal free, which means it is extremely safe to play on.
Our full range is sourced from sustainable products.
Installing outdoor sports surfaces demands specific expertise, a high level of precision and experience. To ensure a successful installation we highly recommend that you only use a certified, approved installer. This will ensure that your system has excellent performance characteristics over the entire surface and longevity.
The high quality and excellent playing properties of our synthetic turfs have also been verified by numerous seals of quality and certificates. Our hockey pitches meet the current national and international standards with completed Poligras fields meeting requirements of the various sport requirements – an achievement that makes us particularly proud.
Care and Maintenance
The construction of a hockey pitch and its associated facilities represents a significant capital investment and major influence on the enjoyment and potential development of the sport in the local and wider community.
To maximise the benefits that a synthetic hockey pitch can provide a key factor that cannot be over emphasised is the implementation of the correct maintenance regime. Our maintenance guidelines are provided for use by the players, facility maintenance personnel and contracted professionals. The information contained covers regular and frequently occurring cleaning and maintenance matters required to maintain a Poligras pitch.
Synthetic sports surfaces generally require far less maintenance and upkeep than natural surfaces. However no synthetic sports surface is 100% maintenance free, regular maintenance and cleaning of synthetic sports surfaces is required to keep them at their optimal playing condition.
