Advantage Acecourt: the unique advantages of AceCourt Tennis Infill

AceCourt Tennis Infill ®, is the flagship product of Sidec, a leading manufacturer of coloured quartz for filling artificial grass pitches, and it possesses 4 unique strengths.

IDEAL FORM AND FRACTION SIZE

To prevent grains from clumping in the grass mats, not only the grain size is important, also the grain distribution is an important factor. Acecourt has the ideal range. Together with its very round shape, this results in optimum water permeability. As the grains are so round, the risk of damaging the artificial grass fibres is very low.

CERAMIC COATING

Not all tennis infill has ceramic coating. When using organic coatings (epoxy, PU, poly urea...), there is a very real risk of colour loss. Acecourt does have ceramic coating, which is the only coating that ensures long-term colour retention and the risk of compaction is very small.

QUALITY

Acecourt has been subjected to various external tests (ISA Sport listest, Labosport, Soil Quality Test) and passed them with flying colours. In addition, each batch is subjected to various extremely stringent internal quality checks. The manufacturer, Sidec, has been ISO 9001 certified for years.

COMPETITIVE PRICE AND FAST DELIVERY

Acecourt is manufactured on-site so you buy directly from the manufacturer. This way, AceCourt can be sold at a very competitive price. Sidec also keeps AceCourt in stock to ensure very fast delivery.

AceCourt resistant to anti-moss products



Producer Sidec subjected AceCourt Tennis Infill © to a thorough immersion test and to a free drop test with anti-moss products. Result: the additional pressure from the active ingredients in most anti-moss products did not influence the Sidec's ace product for artificial grass pitches.

The following anti-moss products had been involved in the tests:

  • Toki
  • Silvanet
  • Roundup Ultra
  • Groene aanslag reiniger
  • Glyfal
  • Netosol
  • Bleach / household bleach 4º
  • salt (10%)
  • grit salt (10%)


These 9 products were subjected to two different tests. In the immersion test, the product was diluted as recommended by the manufacturer. The AceCourt granules were immersed in it. After 30 days, the granules were rinsed with tap water, dried and compared with the reference sample.

During the free drop test the anti-moss product was diluted as stipulated by the manufacturer. Twenty drops of this solution were spread over the AceCourt granulates. Afterwards, the granules were dried for 24 hours under UV light (UVB 313EL type). This process was repeated every day for a period of 14 days. The results were compared before and after rinsing with water from the active components.
