Poligras Toyko GT
Poligras® Tokyo GT® is the new world class and sustainable hockey surface on the market. The application of several innovative technologies has redefined the surface of hockey.
Poligras Tokyo GT
With new Poligras Tokyo GT hockey turf, we are bringing to the market the first synthetic hockey turf which features filaments made from over 60% regrowable raw materials. We use BioBased PE to add a sustainable dimension to the outstanding playing properties of its tried-and-tested polyethylene monofilament fibres.
The Poligras Tokyo GT turf structure is specifically adapted to the Bio Based PE formula, enabling dynamic and precise playability.
Patented Entanglement technology in the filaments means the multi-directional surface remains stable in the long term and is protected against premature wear.
The CoolPlus technology ensures the turf stays cool even on hot days. The pigments on the surface of the turf fibres reflect the infrared part of solar radiation, whilst PreciTex process engineering guarantees the turf’s uniform colour.

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 greatly reduce tissue damage, joint impact, 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.
Tokyo GT is a permeable surface which when irrigated, promotes fast and consistent playing conditions. Wet hockey surfaces are sophisticated in their design and structure to accommodate not only for the flow and storage of water, but the slow drainage from the pitch as well. Whilst engineered to meet very tight tolerances, the surface is constructed similar to a ‘turtle shell’ shape that slowly drains water horizontally towards the corners of the field, once through the permeable grass surface.
Our Green Technology executes a new generation of highly developed products that bring together cutting-edge technological expertise from the plastics industry. With functional and ecological benefits of natural regrowable raw materials, we are happy to introduce the first ‘GREEN’ environmentally friendly hockey surface with Tokyo GT.
The exclusive 'Entanglement Technology' is a proprietary feature of the Polytex fibres, which interlaces the molecular chains in the turf fibre into a three dimensional matrix. The result is an exceptionally soft surface and greater protection against splicing with optimum playing properties and a considerably longer lifespan.
Poligras Tokyo GT features our proprietary infrared-reflective COOLplus® sports yarn technology. Our proprietary COOLplus® yarn technology does not absorb infrared rays, translating into less molecular vibration and cooler surface temperatures. Studies show COOLplus® surface temperatures are consistently 10-20% lower than the competitive systems. The result is better player comfort and reduced need for irrigation!
PreciTex enables precisely controlled crimping of textured fibres, regardless of the fibre cross-section. The result is a multi-directional and tightly sealed surface with optimum ball rolling behaviour, which simultaneously supports the cooling effect of the COOLPlus function.
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.
Optimised Ball Roll
Poligras Tokyo GT is redefining the speed of hockey. The ball roll distance on the latest Tokyo GT hockey turf is improved by around 15%, compared with Poligras Platinum which had previously proven its speed capabilities at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
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.
Poligras Tokyo GT is the first synthetic hockey turf made from over 60% regrowable raw materials. The turf structure is specifically adapted to the Bio Based PE formula, enabling dynamic and precise playability. This product also meets all the usual health and safety specifications, in addition to being environmentally friendly.
Our full range contains recycled rubber which has been washed and prepared for use in the shock pad underneath the surface.
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. Poligras Tokyo GT, when constructed and installed correctly is able to meet FIH Global Elite certification.
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.
