Does Artificial Grass Fade in the Sun?
Easigrass artificial grass is UV stabilised, meaning it won’t lose the luscious green colour its famous for.
Exposure to direct sunlight will degrade most fabrics and fade their colours. But thanks to the countless hours of research, experimentation and our creative innovative design, our artificial turf can withstand extreme temperatures, bright sunlight and heavy footfall.
So, let’s find out how your artificial grass might look over the course of a decade.
What is UV stabilisation?
We add substances to our grass that prevent a chemical process called ‘photodegradation’.
Photodegradation occurs when ultraviolet radiation from the sun collapses chemical bonds within a polymer. This causes a reduction in quality of the polymer, including its colour.
But the UV-stabilising substances we add absorbs the UV radiation and disperses the energy into heat. This prevents the chemical bonds in the polymer from collapsing, thereby maintaining the rich colour of the grass.
Easigrass artificial grass will remain attractive in all weather conditions: extreme heat, bitter cold or heavy rain.
How long until my artificial turf shows any fading?
Easigrass fake turf performs well in some of the hottest climates in the world. For total peace of mind, we offer a UV warranty to guarantee that your lawn won’t be affected by UV degradation.
Due to different geographical locations having varying degrees of UV exposure, our warranty differs depending on the location in which it is installed.
- Northern Europe — 8 years
- Southern Europe — 8 years
- Middle east, non-temperate, subtropical and tropical climate — 6 years
Please note that this warranty does not indicate that your grass will begin to discolour immediately after the warranty period. In most circumstances, our artificial grass products should remain fully protected from UV light for a period of 10-15 years.
What else could fade the colour of my grass?
If discolouration does occur, it is most likely due to residue from pet waste or stains from spilled paint/chemicals. If you have pets that regularly use your fake grass, or you spill any chemical products onto your lawn, we recommend regularly rinsing down the turf to maintain its green colour.
